Miriam has a proud history of more than 100 years of service in the St. Louis community. The organization was originally chartered in 1910 as “Miriam No. 17,” a local chapter of the national organization United Order True Sisters, Inc. (UOTS) and focused on community service. Today, Miriam is the most comprehensive resource for children with learning disabilities. Its three programs, Miriam School (PreK-8), Miriam Academy (9-12), and Miriam Learning Center, annually serve 1,000 St. Louis-area students. 

For over 60 years, Miriam School has provided an independent special education school for students with learning differences. In 2016, Miriam opened a new high school, Miriam Academy, for grades 9-12. Both schools focus on personalized learning with small student-to-teacher ratios where students thrive academically and socially. Miriam Learning Center opened in 2017 to provide services to students ages 3-18 who wish to remain in their current educational environment but need specialized in-school, after-school, or weekend support services to meet their potential. 

The Miriam Switching Post, Miriam’s resale shop located in Brentwood, sells gently used furniture and household goods, with proceeds directly benefitting the programs of Miriam.

Susie Luten is president of the Board.
