ACSM and APA building a new era with new campus

On Aug. 22, 2016, a new era began for AcadeMir Charter Schools. Both AcadeMir Charter School Middle and AcadeMir Preparatory Academy moved to a new building, located at 5800 SW 135th Ave. in Kendale Lakes.

The campus is actually made up of two buildings: One, which is open now, consists of three floors (one of which is the rooftop gymnasium) and can fit approximately 500 students. Next year, another new building will open, which will house an additional 300 students.

Students from ACSM, which was located previously in Westwood Lakes, and APA, which was located in Kendall near Miami-Dade College, have faced an adjustment period. However, the new building offers new opportunities for students.

The new, expanded building will allow ACSM and APA to host more events to the outside community. For example, earlier this month the schools hosted their first VEX IQ robotics competition. Previously, the school traveled to other competitions.
