With its increasing waitlist, Tyler Classical Academy is building a new campus for the 2017-18 school year to meet local family interest. Currently serving students in K-8, the new campus will allow the school to add more sections and to grow a grade each year until it offers kindergarten through 12 grade.
To celebrate the event, the school will host a groundbreaking on September 30 at 10:00 a.m. with Senator Elect Bryan Hughes in attendance. The event will take place at the new school location: 3405 East Grande Blvd., Tyler, TX 75707.
Tyler Classical Academy, a ResponsiveEd charter school, was launched in 2012 as Vista Academy of Tyler. In 2015 it was renamed Tyler Classical Academy to better convey the school’s content rich curriculum, focus on American civics and character education.
Keith Garcia, who has been the campus director of the school since it first opened, is looking forward to the opportunities that the new school will bring.
“The new building is very exciting for our school community. We have grown so much since our first day of school, and the new campus is the next step towards making sure parents have the choices their students need to succeed,” said Mr. Garcia.
ResponsiveEd’s VP of Facilities Brian Stevens said the company chose the new location based on future growth, traffic and attendance considerations.
“Meeting the needs of our families is always our goal, and I think our parents will be pleased with the new school. We chose the land for the new campus by mapping out the commutes of our current parents and then deciding the most central location. With 21 acres, the new campus will have plenty of room to accommodate athletic fields and reduce carline traffic,” said Mr. Stevens.
The new campus will be a state-of-the-art learning facility with bigger classrooms, new furniture, science and computer labs, a library, a kitchen, a cafeteria, locker rooms, athletic fields and a full court gym with seating.
