Last spring Vision Charter Academy knew that it needed more space. A growing number of local families are choosing the individualized experience provided through Vision Charter Academy. Thus the "modular project" began and has recently culminated in four new classrooms on the Vision Charter Academy Delta campus.
By adding the classrooms, there is not only more room for the learners in the class-based path, but meeting space for the parent-guided learners, their families and their highly qualified coordinators in the main building is once again available. Additionally, exploration classes for parent-guided learners will have the room to be the robust project-based experience on campus it was designed to be.
The campuses of Vision Charter Academy in all three locations -- Surface Creek, Delta and the North Fork -- are learning centers for all three paths (parent-guided, class-based, and blended) offered by Vision Charter Academy.
A communitywide event for many areas of celebration is Tuesday, Jan. 17 at 3 p.m. at the VCA Delta campus. The ceremony will include a ribbon cutting for the new classrooms, a dedication of the new flag pole, acknowledgement of the Food for Thought storage facility, membership in the Delta Area Chamber of Commerce and the presentation of the $25,000 State Farm Neighborhood Assist grant check. Similar events are planned for all campuses as VCA joins Cedaredge, Paonia and Hotchkiss chambers of commerce and celebrates the grant with the big check.
This celebration is to acknowledge the amazing community support for Vision Charter Academy in its growth and development and to thank everyone who voted for Food for Thought. Please plan on attending. Learners will be giving tours, answering questions and there will be refreshments.
