The BELIEVE Mission

The BELIEVE Mission

The world is shifting, and BELIEVE is a high school for the current time. College is no longer the single leading pathway to financial independence and success for our nation’s youth. Students must be given exposure and access to additional avenues to high-wage, wealth-building opportunities – whether through a college or a career program. BELIEVE Schools is dedicated to creating equitable, rigorous, and joy-filled spaces for students to learn, grow, and develop.

Replicated from our original campus in Indianapolis, BELIEVE STL Academy will ensure all students graduate with an associate’s degree or a career certification in a high-demand, skilled career alongside their high school diploma. This will be achieved through meaningful and purposeful community partnerships that will help elevate the student and the St. Louis community.
