Dear Hodgen Tech Academy Community,

It is with great pleasure and pride that I extend a warm welcome to each member of our esteemed school community. As we embark on another academic year, I am thrilled to continue leading the incredible scholars, dedicated staff, and supportive families of Hodgen Tech Academy.

I am Dr. Julia Kaiser, and I have had the honor of serving in the St. Louis Public Schools District for the past 18 years. Since the 2017-2018 school year, I have been privileged to be the principal of Hodgen Tech Academy, a role that I hold with great passion and commitment.

The challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic did not deter us from our mission of providing a high-quality, rigorous education to all our scholars. Together with our outstanding Hodgen staff, we navigated these unprecedented times with resilience and determination. I am proud to share that during this period, Hodgen Tech Academy was recognized with the Bayer School of Excellence Award, and I was humbled to receive the St. Louis Public Schools Principal of the Year award.

Our school community, comprised of Hodgen families and staff, plays a pivotal role in creating an environment where scholars can thrive. The dedication and collaboration of each member contributes to the success of our students, even during the most challenging circumstances.

In the 2022-2023 school year, our Hodgen Inventors Robotics & Coding team secured first place in the St. Louis Public School's First Lego League Competition. Their remarkable performance continued as they competed against 220 teams regionally, earning an impressive 19th place.

At Hodgen Tech Academy, we are committed to meeting the unique needs of every learner. Our focus is on fostering a safe, welcoming learning environment where all scholars can flourish. Our school motto, "We Read to Lead and Succeed," encapsulates our belief in the power of education to empower our scholars to become leaders in their own right.

As we embark on this new school year, I am confident that together, as a united school community, we will achieve even greater heights. Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to another year of academic excellence, growth, and success at Hodgen Tech Academy.

Your partner in education,

Dr. Julia Kaiser
