2022-2023 Annual Report

Dear Miriam Community,

I hope the Spring of 2024 brings you the abundance of growth and promise that we are experiencing at the Miriam School and Learning Center. Miriam’s No. 1 core value, “Learners First,” is deeply felt throughout our organization - from our personalized programming in our K-12 school, the way we wrap our arms around Greater St. Louis, providing “soup to nuts” special education services for over 1,500 children through our Learning Center outreach. Finally, it is felt at Miriam Switching Post, where 46 dedicated volunteers and staff work to collect donations and generate revenue to help children get the special education help they need to lead independent, happy and healthy lives after our care.

Fiscal Year 2023 brought so many wins for Miriam. The High School graduated 14 students and supported half of them as they prepared for college - and the other half as they entered the workforce or a career program. We held our first “Next Steps Fair” at the high school, with representatives of colleges and other programs present to talk with students and families in the gym. The Lower/Middle School grew in enrollment and needed to open a fifth middle school classroom this school year. The K-8 community also brought back its Spring Picnic for the first time since before COVID, and it was such a joy to see our families and staff enjoying this special day together. The Learning Center finished its first year of a successful two-year contract with the Archdiocese. Learning Center staff also prepared to begin offering comprehensive autism testing using the ADOS assessment.

There are many wonderful things happening at Miriam this spring. I invite you to come experience the joy of students who feel loved, understood and successful by participating in our Tuesday Talk & Tours. We hope to see you at an upcoming event, such as our Second Annual Next Steps High School Transition Fair on April 19th, our High School Graduation on May 10th, our Middle School Graduation on May 17th or the Young Professionals Trivia Night on June 28.

There is truly no place like our Miriam organization. We are grateful for the way each one of you supports our mission. Please know that my door is always open for feedback and ideas on how we can best deliver our mission to help as many children as possible with learning differences, optimize their potential, and share the beautiful strengths they possess with the rest of the world.
