About STS Academy

Executive Director's Welcome

As Executive Director I wish you a very warm welcome to STS Academy! We are at the heart of the Pittsburg community and in 2018 we have succeeded in providing local families an excellent education delivered by exceptional teachers in award winning facilities.

Our achievements can be seen through rapid improvements in education. We are also making key strides towards creating programs which make a significant difference to the community we serve and that provides opportunities for all our pupils and students.

Kandy Simmons, Executive Director


STS Academy bridges the gap between inner-city youth who prosper and benefit from the public school system and those who struggle and sometimes fail. We help to bridge this gap by communicating with parents, teachers, students and STS. We refer to this communication as The Ultimate Partnership.
