Lift For Life Academy has promised to our students, their families, staff and the community that we are committed to supporting a desire for knowledge and lifelong learning; creating new solutions to help personalize teaching and learning to improve outcomes across all abilities.


What Does It Take to Fulfill Our Promise?

It takes vision, commitment and strategic planning. It also requires aspirational dreams and commitment. Lift For Life Academy is fortunate to have all these and more.

We have extraordinary community supporters who have allowed the Academy to grow from a one-room, one-grade school housed in a garage into an oasis of learning for 585 students in grades 6-12 who live in the city of St. Louis.

Lift For Life Academy was built through the generosity of our supporters. Now with your help, it’s time to take another growth step to fulfill our promise by expanding our campus and our students’ horizons.

After careful planning, we have established an ambitious yet attainable goal of $2.5 million for the Fulfilling Our Promise Campaign:
• $1.9 million to construct a Health & Well-being Center
• $600,000 to expand the John Mann High School wing to add classrooms, science labs and a fashion design studio
