Our Mission

LeeAnn Armitage, Director, Founder / Anthony Armitage, Director, Founder

Truly I tell you, whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. ~Matthew 25

Fred Brown is the Chairman of the Board and founder of the International Conpanies of St. Louis. Fred is also founder of the International Charitable Organization. Fred is a member of Annunziata parish in Ladue, MO.

LeeAnn and Anthony are parents of two children and are members of Mary Queen of Peace Parish in Webster Groves, MO. Their youngest child was born with Down syndrome. After extensive research to determine the optimal educational pathway for their son with Down syndrome LeeAnn and Anthony were inspired by inclusive education and the many Catholic schools around the country implementing inclusive programs. The opportunity of inclusive education, a strong belief in Catholic education, and the desire to educate their children together in one school created a passion to help all families of children with special needs and to serve Christ's church by helping our St. Louis archdiocese schools offer a new option for educating children with special needs.
