CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

A NEW CAMPUS TO advance our mission

Making more room to implement our vision of giving young people deprived of a quality education an opportunity to build a brighter tomorrow.

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

CCE has launched a $20 million capital campaign to complete the construction of a new campus. Honorary campaign chairs are Palm Beach residents and prominent philanthropists Irene and Jim Karp. $12 million in funding has been raised to date, including donations from Susan and Dom Telesco, the Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation, Dan Catalfumo of Catalfumo Construction, the Conrad Hilton Foundation, and the Jasteka Foundation.

SitePlan

Our New Campus

Located at 2400 Metrocentre Blvd, West Palm Beach, the new campus will house The Foundations School and headquarters for CCE. The new campus is expected to welcome students and families for fall 2022.

With access to four acres of land at the new site, CCE is renovating an existing 28,000-square-foot building to house administration offices and a 200-student Kindergarten-through-fifth-grade elementary school. The site’s current building will offer 12 technologically equipped classrooms, designed to inspire creative thinking and academic success; a 900-square-foot space built specifically for creativity and exploration; a multipurpose cafeteria, as well as an outdoor playground. The Arts and Science Center will be housed in a brand new 22,000 square-foot-building. Spina O'rourke + Partners has been hired as the architect and space planner, and Quest Builders will oversee construction.

*Did you know?
CCE focuses on serving students within three  zip codes: 33401 (West Palm Beach), 33404 (Riviera Beach), and 33407 (West Palm Beach). These three zip codes are the lowest performing zip codes in Palm Beach County based on risk indicators chosen by the Children Services Council (CSC) Zip Code Report (2017) comparing a range of data across Palm Beach County. These zip codes fail at least 10 of 12 risk indicators used. 33407 fails 11 of 12.

Risk indicators include: Percent of families with children aged 0 to 5 in poverty, percent of children scoring not ready for school, percent of children not on 3rd grade reading level, and high school graduation rates, to name a few.

Our Students

Most of the students we work with live in economically and socially challenging circumstances and are considered “at risk” of educational failure. At The Foundations School, we provide these students with a safe space to learn, create, and be themselves. Our arts-integrated approach gives children different avenues for understanding and growth.

Through all our educational services, the Center for Creative Education prepares students for the future by developing their creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Our arts-based projects invite exploration, inventiveness, team building, and cooperation. These positive learning experiences can change the way that students think about themselves and school.
