St. Louis U. High Day

Save the Date - Thursday, November 14, 2019

Every year, SLUH meets the need of our students and their families by funding the demonstrated financial aid needs – this year, 40% of the student population.

In support of this mission, please make plans to join hundreds of St. Louis U. High alumni and current parents in the Si Commons in celebration of 201 years of SLUH at the St. Louis U. High Day Phonathon Experience.

Last year's inaugural St. Louis U. High Day celebration raised more than $200,000 and our goal is to exceed that total in 2019 - but we can't do it without your help.

Saint Louis Academy opened its doors on November 16, 1818. SLUH now celebrates St. Louis U. High Day as a celebration of more than 200 years of educating young men in the City of St. Louis.

The program on Thursday, November 14, will include a student speaker, comments from SLUH President Alan Carruthers, plus a fun, fast-paced program that gets everyone excited for the real purpose of the evening: asking for support of the young men of SLUH.
