KIPP: Woodson Park Academy
Full opening in August 2021!
The new KIPP: Woodson Park Academy welcomed its first students back to in-person learning in spring 2021 in a brand-new building. This building was the result of a community-driven partnership that includes some of Atlanta’s premiere organizations.
The completion of the revitalized campus of educational and health services facilities in the Grove Park neighborhood is the culmination of years of neighborhood input, partnership and collaboration that brought together nonprofits, government, corporations, foundations and more.
The new KIPP: Woodson Park Academy, located at 1605 Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway NW, is a 115,000-square-foot, pre-kindergarten to 8th grade public school that will serve up to 900 students.
The school opened Phase I in mid-March 16th, which included in-person instruction for a targeted group of scholars. Phase II began a month later with a face-to-face option for all families who chose to return. Phase III, which begins in August 2021, includes in-person learning for all the students it serves.
In addition, a 23,000-square-foot YMCA Early Learning Center opened in early February. The learning center employs a hybrid teaching model: two classrooms were initially open in the spring, with plans to expand enrollment to all six classrooms in the fall.
Finally, a 2,500-square-foot community health facility (operated by Whitefoord Inc.), makes the campus a community and neighborhood hub, as well a central component of larger equitable revitalization efforts in the Grove Park neighborhood.
In all, the project had an impressive and intentional level of minority/women contracting participation: more than 40 percent of contractors involved were qualified minority- and women-owned companies.
