We are thrilled to have great partnerships with other private, independent schools in St. Louis including Whitfield School. On Thursday, October 4, 2018, several Whitfield students volunteered their time at City Academy for Whitfield’s community service day. One of the students was City Academy alumnus, Malik Smith ’15 (Whitfield School ’21), who decided to give back to his alma mater.Share this:

Camp Cultural Leadership was an influential experience. I learned about social justice issues and how they affected people, African American and Jewish history, and made great new friends.
Camp Cultural Leadership is the 3 week camp version of the high school program, Cultural Leadership. During camp we studied African American and Jewish history, and their relationship.Share this:
First Week of School Reflection by Don Danforth
This week, we launched our twentieth school year. It was exciting to see the optimism and excitement of everyone, especially our students. One parent shared that her daughter bounced out of bed, fully dressed and ready to go, having slept in her school uniform!
For me, first days are a time for reflection. I am reminded of how far we have come since opening the school in 1999 at Mathews-Dickey Boys’ & Girls’ Club with only 42 students. As we celebrate twenty years of exceptional education, we are excited to open our doors to a record number of students: 202!
2018 Graduation Performance by Lillie Harrison ’18
Good evening, my name is Lillie Harrison.
Today, on my graduation day, I will be performing a West African dance called Medanie. Through this dance I will express how I have risen from a person who lacked confidence and a positive mind-set to a person who has gained confidence and resilience through her journey.Share this:
2018 Graduation Song by Kenneth Cunningham ’18 (Life Academy ’24)
Good evening my is Kenneth Cunningham and this evening I will be playing one of my favorite, songs Amazing Grace. I selected this song because City Academy has shown grace to me and this evening, as I say goodbye to my City Academy family, I am so thankful for the amazing things I am able to take with me. So I thought it would be appropriate to play this song.
2018 Graduation Speech by Shayla Danzie ’18 (John Burroughs ’24)
If the many years I’ve spent at City Academy have taught me anything, it’s that hard work provides you with opportunities. Since the very beginning of my career as a scholar here at City Academy, I have been given numerous opportunities that have shape me into the student and person I am today. The poem I’ve written, titled ‘From Grain to Slab’ represents the hard work that I’ve had to put forth in order to get these opportunities and how I’ve used them to benefit myself.Share this:
