Welcome to Confluence Charter Schools!
Confluence Charter Schools is a non-profit public charter school system that strives to provide the highest quality pre-collegiate education to students in pre-kindergarten through high school.

Confluence Charter Schools is governed by one Board of Directors with two charter school sponsors – University of Missouri-Columbia and Saint Louis University. As a result, the District is comprised of two local education agencies, or LEAs.

University of Missouri-Columbia sponsors five sites - Old North, South City, Aspire Academy, Elite Academy at CPA and Confluence Preparatory Academy. Aspire Academy and Confluence Academy-Old North serve students in grades PreK-6; Confluence Academy-South City serve students in grades PreK-8. Elite Academy at CPA serves students in grades 7-8, and Confluence Preparatory Academy serves students in grades 9-12. To learn more about MU as a charter school sponsor, click here.

Saint Louis University sponsors Grand Center Arts Academy. The school serves students in grades 6-12. To learn more about SLU as a charter school sponsor, click here.

Since its establishment in 2003, Confluence Academy has grown as a public charter school from one campus and 245 students to a network of five schools serving nearly 3,600 students. The schools are self-managed and overseen by the Resource Office staff.

Throughout its history, Confluence has become one of the most successful networks of public charter schools in the City of St. Louis and in Missouri.
