SERVICE LINE: Snyder Langston

The overall project includes eight buildings totalling 93,250 s.f. located on an existing seven-acre parcel in Santa Ana, CA and will be built in multiple phases. The new Charter High School will accommodate 480 students in a project-based learning STEM curriculum, with on-site living units for up to 80 students. Phase I was an interim campus plan which included 11 classroom and administrative modular units along with all of the campus infrastructure. The campus admitted their inaugural freshmen class in August 2013.

Phase II will include a steel frame, three-story, 30,000 s.f. classroom building and an interim campus classroom complex that will house 120 students and will be completed for the 2015 school year.

Phase III of the project will include an additional one story student services, administrative and academic building and three residential units that will house 80 foster care youth in eight family-style housing units. Phase IV of the project will include a science building and a physical education building with a gymnasium, auditorium and athletic facilities.

The site design allows for all rain water to be retained and filtered on-site prior to discharge into the city storm drain system through permeable pavers and a bio swale system. There is also a cistern incorporated into the Commons building for rain water collection that will be used to irrigate a student garden area.
