What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Every adolescent has a unique learning style. For a child also struggling with mental, emotional and learning disorders - that learning style may become a roadblock to learning and succeeding. St. Louis has almost 80,000 youth ages 0-19. Over 17,000 are projected to have mental health challenges that qualify for a diagnosis. Over 3,500 of them are projected to have a mental illness with severe impact (St. Louis Mental Health Board - Youth Needs Mental Health Assessment 2014). Approximately 50% of students with a mental disorder age 14 and older drop out of high school (U.S. Department of Education). 27% of students with a learning disability will drop out of school.

Founded in 1970, Logos is an independent, alternative, therapeutic middle and high school in St. Louis. We are dedicated to assisting students and their families with academic and emotional needs which have not been met in the traditional classroom.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Individualized Eductation

6:1 student to teacher ratio. Logos individualizes an academic plan for each student, to address their unique learning styles and issues. The school year is divided into 6 academic terms, with 30 more class days than required by the state of Missouri to help struggling students get back on track and stay there.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents
At-risk youth

Each student at Logos is assigned to an adolescent therapist upon enrollment. Students receive a minimum of one hour of individual therapy and 2 hours of group therapy each week. Additional supports are in place to help students throughout the day. Therapists are on call 24/7.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

• To decrease the high school dropout rate and maintain the Logos graduation rate of 98%.
• To increase the number of at-risk youth that receives a high school diploma by increasing our student retention rate 20% over the next year.
• To reduce the number of youth committing crimes and violent acts: 10% decrease in aggressive acts for each Logos student struggling with aggression.
• To increase the number of Logos youth that complete alcohol and drug awareness programs and abstains from alcohol and drug use by 15%.
• To increase the number of at-risk youth that show commitment to community values. Seniors are required to perform 120 hours of community service.
• To teach at-risk students the skills and coping structures needed to become successful adults.
• Teach students the appropriate coping skills when struggling or in crisis.
• Teach the skills needed to care for themselves in everyday life despite their personal challenges.
• To seek and find employment in a field where they can achieve success if they do not go on to post-secondary education.
• Develop a solid transition plan for maintaining mental health care and assistance after graduation.

To achieve our goals, Logos provides individualized academic plans, individual and group therapy and strong parental involvement. We identify and address the specific learning and emotional needs of every student and develop a success plan tailored to those needs.

• 11 month program divided into six academic terms.
• 30 more class days than required by the state to help adolescents get back on track.
• Individualized academic plans for each student.
• Self-contained middle school to meet the individual needs of those students.
• 6:1 student to teacher ratio in the classroom.
• Certificated teachers.
• Thirteen full time licensed therapists.
• All high schools and colleges accept Logos' credits
• Logos is the only program in the St. Louis area that combines strong academics with the necessary therapeutic and parental support to help students succeed.
• Academic faculty contact parents at least once every eight weeks.

Our accreditation with the Independent Schools Association of the Central States was recently renewed. We are currently in the process of applying for therapeutic accreditation through the Council on Accreditation.
