Campus Life

Barat is the St. Louis area's only co-educational high school that educates the genders separately. With a maximum of 18 students in a class, students build a strong sense of community and personal identity as they LOVE, LEARN, SERVE, BUILD and GROW in a caring and diverse community.  While students are serious about their academics, they also make time for co-curricular activities, community service and socializing. We welcome new people, new experiences and new ideas.
