Hapeville Charter Career High School 8th and 9th Grade Academy

Project Location: Union City, Georgia

Project Scope: 70,000 sf $16.6 million

Completion Date: 2010

This facility is the first non-profit owned Charter Career Academy in Georgia. It was designed as a LEED building to be built in eight months, from “we need a building but we don’t have a site”, to move-in with all the furniture and technology needed for a future oriented course of study. The Ninth Grade Academy (15,000 sf) was the first element of Hapeville Charter Career Academy’s High School. It was also one of the first five charter academy’s to receive a grant for construction from the State of Georgia. The Ninth Grade Academy was converted into an Eighth Grade Academy as part of a second phase of construction including a larger, 55,000 s.f. high school building.

Five areas of professional certifications are provided in conjunction with Atlanta Technical College including Avionics Technician, Paralegal, Patient Care Assisting, Dental Assisting and Front-end Alignment / Brakes / Steering Systems.
