Toledo, August 1–Western Toledo Preparatory Academy (WTPA) is expanding its current campus and adding a satellite school this fall to meet demand from the community. WTPA ranks in the top 25% of Ohio charter schools and received five stars for progress from the Ohio Department of Education last school year. The K-8 school is managed by ACCEL Schools, a leading public charter school management organization working to address educational inequities through its nationwide network of 85 schools.
The satellite campus, Western Toledo Preparatory Academy at Spring Meadows, is located at the site of the former iLEAD campus at 1615 Timberwolf Drive in Holland. The new K-8 campus will offer a well-rounded college preparatory educational model that prioritizes students’ social-emotional wellness. Registration is open for the start of school this August.
In addition to the new school, the original WTPA campus is expanding to meet the needs of a growing student body. Work is underway currently to add a baseball and softball field. Construction has started on a hinged bridge for commercial vehicles to access the campus from Hill Avenue, limiting the impact of construction on the neighboring community. Following the bridge completion, the school will add six new modular classrooms with a slated completion of this December.
Prospective families are invited to attend Parent Information & Game Night at the Spring Meadows campus this Thursday, August 3 from 4-6pm to find out more information about the school expansion and enroll for the upcoming school year. To RSVP visit westerntoledosm.org/events.
