Community group to open charter school in St. Louis

July 22, 2011
Better Living Communities Academy will be housed in a neighborhood church

From The St. Louis Post-Dispatch: A new charter school, Better Learning Communities Academy, is scheduled to open Aug. 15 inside a Lutheran church on the north side of St. Louis. The school will be the fourth new charter to open this fall, and the 13th to open with the endorsement of Mayor Francis Slay. Over the years, Better Living Communities has developed 175 homes for low- to moderate-income families in the city's Hyde Park neighborhood. The group decided that creating a new school could further stabilize the neighborhood.
