Welcome to Our Beautiful New Home!

Saturday, October 15, 2011, was a beautiful day, and it wasn't just the weather. Students, staff, families and community members came together to dedicate our new campus. After the ribbon was cut, almost 200 volunteers remained to plant trees throughout the site. In addition to the ribbon-cutting and planting, the day included a small ceremony to honor the Nakagawa family, previous owners of our site.

Many, many thanks to the supporters and community partners who made this day possible. It's impossible to list all of the people who work with us to challenge and support our students on their way to College for Certain, but we have highlighted a few that played an integral role in the construction of our new Garden Street home (right). And a final huge thank you to Canopy, who donated all of the trees and coordinated an inspiring volunteer work day. Thanks again to all, and we hope to see you on Monday, January 16, 2012, for our fruit tree planting with Collective Roots! (More details to follow...)

The Long Road to Garden Street
Here are some pictures of our previous locations. Our new home is quite the departure from our old digs!
