STLCOP-SLPS Summer Academy
The STLCOP-SLPS Summer Academy is a one-week pharmacy enrichment program for seventh-and eighth-grade middle school students offered by the St. Louis Public School District and St. Louis College of Pharmacy. The program exposes students enrolled in Compton Drew Investigational Learning Center Middle School and McKinley Classical Junior Academy Middle School to pharmacy education experiences using basic math and science skills. Students receive fun, hands-on experiential learning from STLCOP’s faculty and students, who chaperone field trips to the Missouri Botanical Garden and Barnes-Jewish Hospital. STLCOP faculty and students also facilitate lectures and discussions on health literacy, introductory pharmacy concepts, and career paths in pharmacy. Students have a unique opportunity to explore pharmacy first-hand in classrooms on STLCOP's campus.
