Access students at St. Cecilia School & Academy work together in small groups to build and program their robots for the upcoming Clavius Project Jamboree at St. Louis University High School

Access partners with urban, values-based middle schools to extend the school day and academic calendar year. All students attending our partner middle schools are enrolled in Academy enrichment programs designed to prepare them for success in the rigorous academic environments of high school and college, as well as teach them how to be leaders in their communities. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Access Academy program is offered at no cost to students and schools.

Currently, our four middle school Academy programs collectively provide over 80 enrichment programs in the areas of:

  • Academic Development
  • S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics)
  • Leadership, Character, & Health  Education
  • The Arts (Performing, Fine, and Practical)
