Be a part of a group of fabulous women who all share a great love for their sons and St. Louis University High. Membership registration is open for anyone who had a son graduate from the "U. High."

The Alumni Mothers’ Club (AMC) is a wonderful way to stay connected to the many moms you met while your son attended SLUH and to start new friendships. We are an active, vibrant, fun-loving group that continues the spirit of service and has deep roots within the SLUH community.
