Thank you for visiting the website for Miriam Academy! Our high school offers a challenging academic curriculum, with support in both speech and language therapy, along with a learning strategies course to support skill development. Everything we do at Miriam Academy is designed to help our students excel.
This has been 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 over the summer and next school 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 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 game.
We began our own Miriam Magic baseball team that plays at Ballwin Athletic Association. Our students visited three colleges this year, as we hope to prepare them for post-secondary plans early in their high school years.
