Lift For Life Academy, which opened in 2000 as the first independent charter school in the city of St. Louis, serves nearly 600 students in grades 6-12 from throughout the city. The Academy offers a private school atmosphere, while all programs and services are provided at no cost to students and their families. Graduation rates are over 90% - and at least 80% of graduates pursue college, technical school, or the military. LFLA’s new Elementary School will open this fall, allowing the Academy to reach students sooner, significantly improving their opportunities for success. Details are forthcoming. Lift For Life Academy is located in the historic Soulard neighborhood at 1731 South Broadway, and supported by both State and Federal funding and through fundraising.
