“One of my favorite memories at City Academy was in third grade when we went on a field trip to the farm, and we had to churn milk to make butter, and engage in fun activities that people did long ago. It was a fun field trip, but also educational because we learned about the history of how people lived long ago.”

Rodney will attend Mary Institute and St. Louis Country Day School.
“A favorite memory or experience of mine as a City Academy student is going through the interview process with the secondary schools. The interviews made me step outside of my comfort zone, so much so I now feel less apprehensive about everything.”

Nevin will attend Mary Institute and St. Louis Country Day School.
“My favorite memory is when we had the track meet and I got second place. This was memorable because I was gathered around all of my friends from different schools and we had a great time.”
Romanis will attend Chaminade College Preparatory School.
“My favorite moment at City Academy was in third grade on our first overnight camping trip to Shaw Nature Reserve, and I had to ask Mr. Speed to help me get down from the bunk bed because I was stuck. That small ladder wasn’t made for me!”
“My favorite moment at City Academy was the moment the girls and I realized this would be our last year together, and we instantly took a walk down memory lane. We giggled about some of our most precious memories together. I remember ending our conversation with us all sharing how exciting it was that we had made it to the end of our journey at City Academy. It was the one time we all shared the same smile.”
