About Our School
We are partnering with the YMCA of the Triangle to build a facility that includes an elementary school and a YMCA. The endeavor is intended to create pathways for an emerging neighborhood whose residents would be able to build a better future through education, wellness, housing, medical access and access to healthy foods.
The school will serve more than 400 students and will include a gymnasium, workout space, group fitness room, multipurpose space and an outdoor swimming pool. All of the children who attend the school will be given free swim lessons.
A place for the community to get healthy, connect and build relationships
