ROGERS, Arkansas – November 9, 2020 – The new ResponsiveEd® property located west of Interstate 49 and south of Walton Boulevard will provide another tuition-free, classical educational option, four miles from sister campus Northwest Arkansas Classical Academy. Slated to open by the start of the 2022-23 school year, the Founders Classical Academy campus will grow to a K-12 by 2024-25. Overwhelming community demand for another public school of choice, coupled with existing parent demand at Northwest Classical Academy, prompted parent company ResponsiveEd® to purchase the nearby site with plans for future growth.
“The land acquisition represents more than just brick and mortar,” says Superintendent Steve Gast. “It represents hope for the nearly 850 students on the waitlist at Northwest Arkansas Classical Academy and families throughout Northwest Arkansas looking for a quality public school option.”
Once completed, the campus in Rogers will be the high school home of 8th-grade graduates at Northwest Arkansas Classical Academy in addition to K-12 students at the site. The new open-enrollment charter school will likely announce application and enrollment details next year.
ResponsiveEd® is a non-profit charter school network operating more than 75 tuition-free public charter schools, throughout Texas and Arkansas. For more, visit ResponsiveEd.com
