When a child starts kindergarten in the St. Louis Public School District or at a St. Louis charter school, the City Treasurer’s Office sets up a college account for your child with its first deposit: $50 from the College Kids program.
In November 2015, parents and guardians will receive a welcome kit with program information and an account number. Once you receive the account card, the account is active and you can start saving. Current parents can expect to receive their welcome packets before Thanksgiving break.
College Kids will offer incentive programs throughout the life of the accounts. Learn how you and your child can earn them here.
