Thank you for visiting the website for Miriam Academy! Our high school offers a challenging academic curriculum, with support in OT, speech, language, and counseling therapy, along with a reading strategies course to support skill development. Everything we do at Miriam Academy is designed to help our students excel.
We had an exciting first year at Miriam Academy! The students submitted a proposal to the NASA Ames Space Settlement contest, after 4 months of intensive research about establishing a community in space. Students learned about growing food, water sources, and atmosphere to sustain life forms, as well as establishing government, educational institutions, and living quarters.
Our Robotics Team began with 16 students learning under the direction of the Clavius Project, with Jeff Pitts as our coordinator and instructor. We will continue with robotics this year, competing in the spring of 2018 at the Jamboree at St. Louis University High School.
Our students have produced a newspaper, both in paper form and online, called “Echo”. You may view it on this site under the ‘Students’ tab. Other past experiences included: a train trip to Washington, MO to visit a trading post, attending the Symphony, and visiting the Wildbird Rescue Center, Wolf Howl, Third Degree Glass studio, the Holocaust Museum, and a Cardinals Baseball games. We visited Ranken Technical College, Meramec, and University of Missouri St. Louis (UMSL) last year. This year, we have already visited Webster University and will visit Maryville University and Fontbonne University. We hope to prepare our students for post-secondary plans early in their high school years.
This year, we began a boys’ tennis team that played at Dwight Davis Court in Forest Park. We will play in a co-ed basketball league at the JCC and continue our Miriam Magic baseball team as a member of MSHSAA.
