“City Academy students are sad to leave and thrilled to return. Their thirst for knowledge is unquenchable so I am challenged every day to provide something new and exciting to hold them over until the next time they get academically parched… which will be soon.”
Noah Hollenkamp joined the City Academy family in 2012 as a Montessori Math Specialist. In 2015, Noah became the Extended Day & Summer Programs Coordinator and remains the school’s trusted Cub Scout Pack 171 Pack Master. He has recently been accepted into the doctoral program for Creativity and Generative Design at University of Missouri-St. Louis.
