Fenton STEM & Leadership Academy
Client: Fenton Charter Public Schools
Scope: Adaptive Reuse
Size: 51,000 SF
Project Manager: Mark Hembree, AIA, LEED AP
Berliner Architects worked with Fenton Charter Schools on redeveloping an existing 49,000 SF office building into a K-5 elementary school. Fenton Academy Charter School is organized into two schools representing two different types of education. The east side of the building represents the Fenton Leadership Academy: Center for Social and Emotional Learning for grades K-2, while the west side of the building represents the Fenton STEM Academy for grades 3-5. They are separated by a central core that includes shared administration and a multipurpose room.
The education at Fenton Leadership Academy is supported by Yale University, which monitors how teaching social and emotional competencies affects academic progress and achievement.
