Barat Academy announces move to Chesterfield, MO It is a new school year and Barat Academy, a private Catholic high school, has moved to a new location in Chesterfield from Dardenne Prairie, MO.

Unsuccessful negotiations with the new lenders - the FDIC and Enterprise Bank, forced an eviction from the school building this summer. Despite attempts to keep the school in St. Charles County, the newer school, only open since 2007, was unable to (1 comments)
