The Cardinals Academic Program is a field trip program at Busch Stadium that integrates the game of baseball with school curriculum and provides hands-on activities in various locations at Busch Stadium. Right now we have created some modified CAP activities to do at home. If you are curious about our field trip program for the future, take a look at this year’s brochure and the promotional video below.
The Summer Slugger program was developed to combat summer learning loss during vacation months, but is even more relevant for students now when they may struggle with knowledge retention due to school closures. The course -- designed for 4th and 5th graders (ages 8-11) -- focuses on math & literacy skills and teaches these concepts through a baseball-themed, gamified experience. Since 2017, over 8,000 students have participated throughout the Cardinals market.

Stadium announcer, and local radio legend, John Ulett (Professor U-Man) also shares his scientific knowledge and unique talents with us each and every week!
The Cardinals teamed up with Scott Credit Union to develop a financial literacy program that introduces students to the importance of making smart financial decisions. Normally shared with educators, the program is being opened up to allow parents to utilize the curriculum while students learn remotely.
