There are two signs announcing the location of the new Monument Academy High School (MAHS). Late last week, developers Matt and Bill Dunston announced they will be donating land on the corner of Highways 83 and 105 which will the location of the new campus.
As you may recall, the MAHS application was approved in November 2017 and our 10-year contract with Lewis Palmer School District 38 to include MAHS was approved in March 2018. We have selected CRP Architects and JHL Contractors last summer and now with land, we will have a formal ground breaking in the spring of 2019.
Our plans include the building of an 80,000 square foot facility to include significant space for the Tri-Lakes YMCA. This unique partnership will enable both MA and the Y to expand their usable space in the near future.
Matt Dunston pointed in his announcement concerning the land donation, “Monument Academy is a unique local asset and we wanted to provide a place for it to grow. The school and YMCA is an ideal blend that will be a tremendous benefit to the entire Tri-Lakes community.”
Classes are set to begin in August 2020 and will be home to nearly 500 high school students in grades 9 – 12 and 350 middle school students in grades 6 – 8.
