As you know, next year Breakthrough will be adding a campus to facilitate our growth as a school. Wanting to help nurture our children’s learning beyond the PK 3, PK 4 and Kindergarten services we’ve offered to date, we’ll be growing into grade 1 next year, grade 2 in 2019-2020, grade 3 in 2020-2021 and so on. Today, I write to tell you a bit more about the history of the site selection, how we’re doing on our plan to open the space, and a little bit about what we think comes next.
After many months of investigation and negotiation, we are excited to share a major milestone in Breakthrough’s effort to locate a permanent facility. On 11/06/2017 we signed an agreement to move forward with a new campus located at 6856 Eastern Avenue, NW. This new site will include approximately 41,000 square feet of indoor space, which, when fully built-out, will accommodate Breakthrough’s planned full enrollment of 405 children ages 3 through 12.
