Our founders created LPA to serve the many St. Louis families who want a top-ranked school without having to leave the city. We believe every child, at-risk or otherwise, has the right to a high-quality education. Providing a high-quality education not only benefits the families we serve, but also contributes to the revitalization of our city.
This commitment is so strong that our founders are still here, working with teachers and staff members, parents, community partners and others to ensure that LPA continues to serve the educational needs of our community.
Teachers and staff choose LPA because they share our vision for what a community school can be—and what we can achieve together—when we work as a family.
