Summer School Moves to Saint Louis University

Thanks to our invaluable partnership with Saint Louis University, Access’ annual summer school program received an exciting upgrade this year. Instead of attending classes at their middle schools, our rising 6th through 8th graders from St. Cecilia and St. Louis Catholic Academy spent three weeks in June immersed on a college campus! At SLU, they completed academic courses, service projects, daily enrichment classes, and a financial literacy program, as well as made new friends and enjoyed some good summer fun (also, snow cones!). Thank you again to our Graduate Support team, work-study students, Billiken Teacher Corps, and STL Teaching Fellows. It was an enriching three weeks, and we look forward to continuing this new summer opportunity (as well as extending it to our students from Sister Thea Bowman) for years to come.
