Providence, RI- Community Preparatory School held a ribbon
cutting ceremony for its new 4,500 square foot facility, sport field and campus
expansion on Wednesday, May 31. The $5 million project is part of Community
Prep School’s $15M REACH! Comprehensive Campaign. The new building includes a
first floor addition with formal entrance, reception area, administrative
offices, student workspace, classroom and community room. Renovations to the existing
school building are also included in the project along with the creation of a
recreational field that will serve Community Prep, the SouthSide Elementary
Charter School, and the neighboring community at large.
City and local business leaders joined with students and
families in the celebration marking the transformation of the school campus.
Councilwoman Mary Kay Harris, who had been instrumental in launching the
school’s decades-long dream of having a campus in South Providence, was among
those to speak.
