Construction to begin on new Doral Academy facility
Ground will be broken on the new permanent state-of-the-art facility for the Doral Academy of Northern Nevada in Reno on Wednesday, Jan. 31.
Doral Academy of Northern Nevada, a tuition-free, arts-integrated, public charter school. The new facility will be located off of Butch Cassidy Drive across from Galena High School in South Reno.
“At Doral Academy we work hard to increase literacy, social, cognitive and emotional development, through the arts for our students,” said Principal Megan Pruitt. “Seeing their successes, both in and out of the classroom, is the most rewarding part of this job.”
The charter school will offer classes for grades K-8 and will be open for the 2018-2019 school year. The school is currently accepting applications for interested families and students.
Demolition will be completed in three phases: asbestos abatement, interior demolition and exterior demolition. The first two phases have already begun inside the 150,000-square-foot retail location formerly known as Shoppers Square; the first visual of outside demolition will be in early October on the northwest corner of the project.
