NEW CAMPUS FOR RAPOPORT ACADEMY
Press Release – April 19, 2012
Rapoport Academy to Open Second Elementary Campus
Originally founded in the basement of a small church in East Waco, Rapoport Academy has grown over the last 14 years to include pre-K through 12th grades, serving 454 students. Over the last few years, the list of students waiting to gain entry to the elementary has significantly exceeded the number of available spots. At times, 30-40 applications will be pending in any single grade for 1-2 available spots.
In keeping with its mission to provide a high-quality educational choice for students, Rapoport Academy has purchased and will begin renovations on the former Hillcrest Adult Day Care building located at the corner of 34th and McArthur. This campus, known as the “North” campus, will initially offer 34 spots each in kindergarten, first, and second grade beginning this fall – August 2012.
In 2013, Phase II of the construction will be complete, thus allowing for the addition of pre-Kindergarten, third, and fourth grade. Upon completion, the North campus will replicate the current East elementary campus, serving about 200 students.
Applications for all grades in the district are being accepted at this time. To apply, interested parents should visit www.rapoportacademy.org and select the “Enrollment” tab. Placement at either the North or East campus will be done administratively during the enrollment process and will be based on multiple factors such as residence and availability of enrollment spots.
On Monday, May 7, 2012, from 5:45-6:30, Rapoport Academy will host an open house at the current elementary campus located at 2000 J.J. Flewellen. For more information about the application process, please contact Gaylene Reed at (254) 855-2397.
