The CMFA Assists Urban Discovery School in the City of San Diego
Urban Discovery Academy operates a charter school serving K through 8thgrade. Their program curriculum is grounded in the idea that children learn through real-life interactions. The School uses a project-based method of learning to educate students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers while developing the knowledge and resourcefulness essential for success in 21st-century urban America. Their program is also a multi-lingual which will provide students a deeper understanding of the world’s cultures and with greater opportunities in their life and careers.
Recently the CMFA provided tax-exempt bond financing which will allow the school to relocate to downtown’s East Village. The new site is owned by the San Diego Community College District. Urban Discovery School has negotiated a 99 year lease. Proceeds of the bonds will be used to renovate and equip their new educational facility.
