Alongside Headmaster Williams, and on behalf of the Board of Directors of Great Hearts Academies and Glendale Prep, I am delighted to announce the new campus for the Glendale Prep community. On November 30th, contingent on securing appropriate city approvals, we will close on the financing of the land for our 8½ acre campus on the southwest corner of 83rd Ave & Pinnacle Peak Rd and soon after begin construction to prepare our new campus home for next August.
From the first day of school over five years ago, Glendale Prep has been a shining example of what a Great Hearts Academy can be with excellent leadership, a talented and dedicated faculty, and families fully committed to the mission of the school. In the coming months, we will build, as one school family, a new home that promises to improve the daily lives of our students and teachers and help unlock the full potential of the academy. The spacious 75,000 sq. ft. campus will also allow for the opening of a K-5 Archway program, and at full growth our new campus will serve nearly 1,000 students in grades K-12.
What's to Come
Construction is scheduled to begin the second week of December and will continue through July. It is exciting to note that with all the new campus activity across our Great Hearts network in recent years, this will be the first campus built from the ground up. Our other campus projects have adapted existing buildings. With your help we will build a campus that is perfectly suited to our school, including spacious classrooms, a home gym, and multi-purpose sports field. We look forward to sending you renderings of the campus soon.
Glendale Prep is thrilled to be able to provide a full K-12 offering for the 2013-14 school year. For incoming 6 - 12th grade students who are interested in attending Glendale Prep, Open Enrollment for the 2013-14 school year will run from November 19 - December 2, 2012. More information regarding enrollment for grades K-5 at our Glendale Prep campus is coming soon. If you know of other families that would be interested in attending Glendale Prep for the 2013-14 school year, please encourage them to sign up for our email interest list so they can stay up to date on Glendale Prep information and events. Our email interest sign-up link and online application can be found at www.greatheartsaz.org.
Finally, please look for the launch of our Capital Campaign. As with our new campuses for Chandler, Scottsdale, and Veritas Prep, we will need the generous support of our families and friends in the community to realize the full vision for our new home. Every family will have an opportunity to be a part of this most important milestone in Glendale Prep history.
I want to thank each of you for being a vital part of the Glendale Prep community.
Onward and upward,
Pursuant to A.R.S. §38-431.02, all notices of the governing board meetings will be posted at the school site and are availablehere.
