About the Friends Board

City Academy’s Friends Board is a group of young professionals devoted to transforming lives through education. They help cultivate new relationships with individuals and organizations throughout the St. Louis community, and support our students and their families through volunteering, hosting events, and fundraising for our scholarship program.
