Our primary goal at Ivy Prep Academies is to provide our scholars a rigorous, quality education that prepares them to be successful lifelong learners. In order to deliver on our promise to our scholars, we must provide them with highly effective teachers and leaders, supported by targeted, research-based instructional models.
For a number of years, the Gwinnett campus location has prevented us from reaching students who need us most. We have been locked into a lease agreement for several years. The lease agreement ends this May (2018). As a result, we are planning to move our campus to a new location.
In an unprecedented decision, and for the first time in the Georgia Charter School commission’s history, the commission renewed our charter and approved our request for a 2018-2019 transition year for the Gwinnett campus. Again, this is unprecedented, and it speaks to the quality of our educational model and the impact that we have on students.
We know that while we are in our one-year transition, scholars and parents will be impacted. This was not an easy decision, but it is a necessary decision to ensure the long-term stability of the school.
