We have a new building!

16 Oct 2009

violet-bottleWe are thrilled to announce that we HAVE CLOSED on a new property at 184 Summer Street (corner of Spring and Summer) in Somerville at the end of April! 184 Summer meets our needs with a large outdoor space, plenty of light-filled rooms for open play areas, and a central location very close to our current community. The same values that brought us all together under Agassiz’s original roof–the sense of unrivaled community, the focus on engaging and nurturing cooperative education, and the true school-family partnership– will continue to thrive at our new location in Somerville.

The Relocation Committee has been working diligently with several local lenders to procure a manageable mortgage and construction loan for the renovation. The total cost of the property and renovation will be $1.15 million. To date we have secured significant support through fund-raising and cost savings, and anticipate a very favorable rate on our funding provided we can meet two conditions: additional grants and gifts to close the gap between funding and funds raised to date and a demonstrated commitment of the involvement of the Agassiz community.

This is where you come in. We now need to renovate the residential property so that it can be used as a school this fall. Visit “Giving” to see how you can help us raise this money. For a donation of $250, you can buy a tile to decorate and install in the new school! Please contact us for more information.
