Dedicated to the mission of bringing innovation to education for its student body, Central Florida Preparatory School was quickly outgrowing its Central Florida campus. Further, the existing facility lacked the specialty spaces required to maximize the STEM education curriculum offered.
In collaboration with its funding partner, ESJ, Central Florida Preparatory School turned to BCCG and its partners to design a facility solution that would incorporate all elements required to fulfill its mission.
The team collaborated to develop a cost efficient, attractive education center. The new, state-of-the art campus, located in Apopka, Florida, is a 45,000 SF, two-story, concrete tilt-up building nestled on a 6.5-acre site.
Designed to serve 600 Montessori and K-12 students, the new school features 35 classrooms, two STEM laboratories totaling 1,000 square feet, a 685-square-foot culinary kitchen, a 3,837-square-foot multi-purpose room, and a full green house. Additional specialty spaces will support programs such as robotics, bio-medical, arts, music and drama, and engineering. A planned Phase II project will include a new gymnasium.
