Welcome to the Home of the Ligers

Lyon Building
  • Lyon Academy at Blow was built in 1903 and first opened for classes the following year. This school has a long and proud history of serving the youth of Saint Louis city through the model of Basic Instruction and today serves as a magnet school for students in grades K-8. Additionally, Lyon is host to a Pre-Kindergarten program and serves as a neighborhood school for grades 6-8. The students of Lyon Academy are proud Ligers, a hybrid of a lion and a tiger known for being the largest feline in the world. At Lyon Academy our students pride themselves on the strength of both their character and their drive to learn. All of the students, faculty, and staff of Lyon Academy are proud to be LIGERS FOR LIFE and we hope you will join us!
