KIPP Woodson Park Academy
The new KIPP Woodson Park Academy school welcomed its first students back to in-person learning in a brand-new building that 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 others.
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 March 16th with phase one, which includes in-person instruction for a targeted group of scholars. Phase two is set to begin April 19 with a face-to-face option for all families who choose to return. A 23,000-square-foot YMCA Early Learning Center opened Feb. 1 employing a hybrid teaching model with two classrooms open this spring and plans to expand enrollment to all six classrooms in the fall. Finally, a 2,500-square-foot community health facility to be operated by Whitefoord Inc. make the campus a community and neighborhood hub and a central component of larger equitable revitalization efforts in the Grove Park neighborhood. 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.
