Windsor Charter Academy receives $100,000 grant from Daniels Fund

Windsor Charter Academy announced Wednesday it received a $100,000 Daniels Fund grant to support technology in the school's high school expansion project.

In 2015, the school expanded from its kindergarten through eighth-grade offerings to include an early-college-model high school.

Construction has begun to expand the school's secondary building to add a new high school wing, which is scheduled to open in August, according to a news release from the charter academy.

Although the school added an early college high school in 2015, the current building houses both middle and high schools; the new wing will be dedicated specifically to the early college high school, according to the release.

"We strive to prepare our students for post-secondary success at our early college high school by creating an exceptional 21st-century classroom experience," said Rebecca Teeples, the school's executive director. "Next year, with the help of the Daniels Fund, we will be able to provide our ninth- through 12th-grade students state-of-the-art instructional technology and access to a STEM lab to support their early college experience."
