South City Prep is a FREE, public school open to all 5th – 8th grade students in St. Louis City, regardless of their neighborhood, socio-economic status, academic achievement, or ethnicity.
Registration is now open for our 4th annual SCP Trivia Night. The event will be held in the gym from 7-10 pm on Saturday, February 22nd. The cost is $200 for a table of 8. Tables sold out in less than 3 weeks last year so gather your friends and reserve your space now.
We want to wish all of our South City Prep friends, families, and partners a safe and happy Thanksgiving break! We will be closed starting Wednesday, November 26th and will reopen Monday, December 2nd.
Don’t forget our Winter Concert is coming up on Tuesday, December 10th at 6:30 pm at Messiah Lutheran Church (across the street from the school). Our scholars have been practicing every day and they are so excited to share their holiday spirit with you. Join us for a reception hosted by the PTO in the church hall downstairs immediately following the concert.
Every year, South City Prep gives a book to each of our scholars as a holiday present. Students work with teachers to identify a high interest book at their reading level. Last year, we had over 130 books purchased by friends of the school allowing us to give a book to every student. You should have seen their faces when they opened their books on the last celebration before break!
This year the challenge is even greater as we need help purchasing close to 200 books for our scholars! Please consider taking a few minutes to check out our Amazon Wish List and purchase a book so our scholars can have a great book to read over the holidays. After your purchase a book on Amazon.com, make sure you ship it to Mrs. Kozlowski and it will arrive directly at the school. Thank you for supporting our avid readers!
One of our favorite South City Prep holiday traditions is fast approaching! The 3rd annual Winter Concert will be held at Messiah Lutheran Church at 6:30pm on Tuesday, December 10.

Reception sponsored by our amazing PTO to immediately follow the concert.
Many of our 5th grade Webster scholars took time out of the frenzy of Halloween to think about the needs the larger world community. When faced with the question “If you could help other people in exchange for not getting candy, would you do it,” ten of our Webster scholars traded in their candy sacks for UNICEF box and together raised over $40 for UNICEF. Way to go Gorlocks! Take a look at Mrs. Oyola’s full story in her Webster blog here.
Webster University, Mrs. Oyola’s alma mater, stopped by to do a profile on her classroom and her amazing work in education. We are so proud of our South City Prep team member! Check out her story by clicking here.
Kalise Harris recently won the 7th grade Poetry Foundation contest by sharing her poem “My Friend”. After reading her heartbreaking poem last month, she had a chance to talk about her poem today in an interview on KPLR Channel 11. Check out her poem and follow up interview by clicking here.
We are so proud of Kalise and the grit she showed by sharing her story and representing our school on television. A huge “shout out” needs to go to our outstanding Communication Arts teachers Colleen Smith, Michelle Oyola, Kate Kozlowski and Anna Taylor. These amazing teachers are motivating our scholars to do some wonderful things and are preparing them to get to and through college!
