Challenging academics, excellent athletics, and a great community. St Louis U High was an incredible place to call home for my high school experience. If you are up to the challenge of getting a jump start on college preparedness, join the SLUH community. It is well worth it!

SLUH is an incredible place that really turns boys into men. It emphasizes the Grad at Grad: being Religious, Open to growth, Committed to Doing Justice, Loving, and Intellectually Competent. The education is unparalleled because it is not just focused on teaching you the books, but teaching you how to be a better person. Now, as a minority, it has been difficult to adjust to a school that is mainly white. However, the support system at the school is awesome and the teachers, counselors, and administration are always there to have your back.
Excellent education and wonderful teachers. I feel well prepared for college and beyond. It can be challenging, and the teachers will push you, but it helps you to grow in confidence. It is one of the top rated private schools in St. Louis, but it is expensive. It can be a struggle for middle income parents who don't quality for aid, but can't necessarily afford the full tuition. As far as resources and education though, it's an exceptional place. I am glad that I chose to make this my High School, and have always felt that this is where I belong.
