Cal Fulenwider, III, Chairman and CEO of L.C. Fulenwider, Inc. announced Tuesday a major donation of 10 acres of land, valued at an estimated $3 million for a 27J public charter, science-based high school, focused on next-generation agriculture.
The school is slated to open in Commerce City 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.
