Grand Center Arts Academy is a charter school based in St. Louis City on Grand Ave., a few blocks north of SLU and The Fabulous Fox. It’s opening this August. There’s no tuition, and 6th and 7th graders in St. Louis City, and some in St. Louis County, are eligible to apply.

I’m basically a huge fan of anything that supports the arts in St. Louis, and this school sounds like it will be a fantastic resource. They’ve hired pretty much all the staff they need for this year, but as the school will be adding a grade each year, they’ll also be hiring more teachers next year. So peoples who are interested in teaching gifted and artistic students should make some longterm plans.
