Mondovi (WQOW) – A project to help boost education in Mondovi received a grant for planning and implementation over the next five years.
Anthony Acres Charter School was granted $800,000 from the Department of Public Instruction’s Wisconsin Charter Schools Program. The charter school was approved by the School District of Mondovi Board of Education last November.
Two years ago, the building, once known as Anthony School, housed 4K students. Those students were relocated into the city complex. Since then, the building sat empty, but now it will have an educational purpose once again.
“It’s a very nice space,” said Superintendent Greg Corning. “It’s got 35 acres out in the country. We have our school forests, we have Rock Creek cutting through the property.”
Corning said the school will offer an unique approach to learning for students who may thrive in a more non-traditional environment. The free, public school will be tailored to 6th through 12th grade students. Doors are expected To open in September 2020.
