InspireSTL is a high school/college readiness program for St. Louis City students in 7th grade. This program begins in the summer between 7th and 8th grades and follows them all the way through college. The first 2 years include an 8 week summer program on SLU’s campus that focuses on academics in the morning and leadership activities in the afternoons. The goal of the program is to “empower our scholars to emerge as a collective of lifelong leaders in service of powerful change by providing them with preparation, access, and support throughout a trans formative educational journey.” It is a competitive program that only selects 40 students total out of St. Louis City.
