City Academy’s Friends Committee is a group of young professionals devoted to transforming lives through education. The Friends Committee is dedicated to cultivating new relationships with individuals and organizations throughout the St. Louis community. Our Friends Committee supports our students and their families through volunteering, hosting events, and fundraising for our scholarship program.

Friends enjoy opportunities to meet other young professionals who are also passionate about education. Friends also host an annual Trivia Night, the first Saturday in March, which supports City Academy’s scholarship program. In 2017, this event raised a record-breaking $40,000 for our students!

If you are interested in becoming a City Academy Friend, please contact our development department: slautenschlager@cityacademyschool.org.
