The Bachman Academy staff has welcomed the return of its middle and high school students who have been diagnosed with learning differences, to the campus. Teeming from nine different states and three international destinations, the students arrived with their friends and families excited to identify their new dorm rooms, reminiscent of 15 years ago when Bachman Academy first began in the fall of 1999, said officials.
By re-purposing many of the existing spaces, the Academy has made the movement of the community more fluid, as well as, more appealing and accessible, said officials. Several buildings received upgrades, while more projects are slated for the coming months.
Projects completed before the start of the new school year included the following:
• The freshly painted and refurbished cafeteria became the Dining Hall
• The library was moved to a more secluded area of the campus, offering a quiet study space
• The old library space is now the Admin Commons, as well as the new entrance to the school
• Lupton Hall was completely renovated and is now the new girls’ dorm
• The Student Center beneath the Chapel received a complete make-over and is now called The Underground
• Grassy areas of the campus are reclaimed as faulty asphalt is ripped up and the soil is prepared for seeding
• The school’s website was redesigned and launched on July 12
• The first-ever official Bachman Academy school app was debuted and is available on Google Play and The App Store.
