St. Louis College Prep and its Executive Director Mike Malone offered their congratulations to the St. Louis Public School district for achieving full accreditation from the Missouri Board of Education in January.
“It is wonderful to see the options for quality education continue to expand for students in St. Louis,” said Malone."When it comes to ensuring the city’s youth get the best education possible, we are all in this work together."
Malone noted that the recent reaccreditation of the city school system was a positive improvement for parents, whether their children attended city schools or any of the numerous charter schools which have offered quality education choices for more than 15 years.
“A rising tide raises all ships,” he said. “We look forward to working with the district and other charter schools to make sure that every child in the city of St. Louis has access to a great education."
St. Louis College Prep is a non-profit, public charter college prep school providing a tuition-free education with free transportation to around 300 St. Louis City scholars in grades 6th through 10th.
The school provides high-tech and high achievement education to a student body as socioeconomically and racially diverse as St. Louis itself.
Scholars at St. Louis College Prep typically achieve 1.5 to 2 years of educational advancement for every year of attendance. The school’s mission is to prepare scholars to enter college, succeed in college, and graduate from college by challenging students academically and emphasizing the importance of character and community responsibility.
