The history of formal Catholic education in the Archdiocese of St. Louis dates to 1818. Bishop Louis DuBourg of the Louisiana Territory established a seminary in Perryville and the first Catholic school in St. Louis. He invited the Religious of the Sacred Heart, the Vincentians and the Jesuits to become a part of this community.

Carrying an oversized jar half full of donated cash, Chaminade College Preparatory's John Yeager was happy to be socializing at a school event and simultaneously raising money to help people in need of support
Six Chaminade students volunteered with six students from St. Louis University High School to collect money for flood victims in Louisiana and earthquake victims in Italy. The big crowd at Chaminade's first home football game of the season generously contributed $1,340.

St. Joseph's Academy's describes its new coffee bar as a place where "the coffee is strong and so are the women."
Cup of Joe opened Aug. 26 with a ribbon cutting, complete with oversized scissors, balloons, and a live stream of the event. The volume of student cheers rose with the rolling concession window, revealing a full coffee bar and a small gathering space. The coffee bar is open to students and visitors before and after school, and has Kaldi's Coffee products, including hot and cold brews, espresso, lattes, smoothies and frappes.

The lab for high-tech STEM instruction at Marian Middle School has a low-tech feel about it.
For example, the basement classroom has standard-issue tables, worn ones at that, instead of chemical-resistant lab tables. And the room's single electrical outlet — yes, just one — inconveniently sets above the old-school chalkboard, at about the 7-foot mark.
"You have to stand on a chair to get access to it," principal Sister Sarah Heger, CSJ, said.
As for storage, there's none, unless the four corners count.
