An Achievable Dream Academy at Lynnhaven Middle School begins design phase for new high school classroom addition.

Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) and An Achievable Dream Academy (AADA) expands its partnership as the design phase for a new addition at Lynnhaven Middle School (LMS) is officially underway. Construction of an approximately 25,000 square-foot addition is slated to begin fall of 2021. This will be home to the first class of the Lynnhaven AADA High School Program, including 9th through 12th graders. The completion date for the new building is January of 2023.

Lynnhaven Middle School welcomed sixth grade students in 2018, and these students will represent the first graduating class from the Lynnhaven AADA secondary school program in 2025. The high school program will partner with neighboring First Colonial High School for selected courses, as needed, and for athletics/activities as many of the students attending the program were already zoned for First Colonial High School.

Programming and planning workshops are currently underway, which will expand to include stakeholder groups later this month. A presentation to the community on the classroom addition is planned for later in the 2020-2021 school year.

An Achievable Dream provides additional resources beyond the VBCPS content and objectives including a Social, Academic and Moral Education (SAME) curriculum. This custom-built curriculum includes classes on personal finance, ethics, conflict resolution and etiquette. Additionally, Seatack Elementary School's AADA program, which began in July 2014, is the division's K-5 program.
