Cal Fulenwider III, chairman and CEO of L.C. Fulenwider Inc., announced a donation of 10 acres of land, valued at an estimated $3 million dollars for a 27J public charter. The intent is for the science-based high school to be focused on next-generation agriculture. The school is slated to open in Commerce City, Colorado, in the fall of 2021 with 165 ninth graders and will support an estimated 660 students at full build-out, growing a grade per year.

With an anticipated groundbreaking in late summer/early fall 2020, the STEAD School (Science, Technology, Environment, Agriculture, and Design) will be one of only a few schools of its kind, offering project-based learning and career and technical education to support the changing realities of modern agriculture. The curriculum is designed to attract and educate students with an interest in a broad range of career pathways in the animal, plant, environmental, and food sciences arenas, representing thousands of career possibilities for future leaders in business, policy, science, energy, and health.
