For our 2014-15 opening, we are in the process of negotiating a long-term lease for a facility that is in/near the north Downtown/Monte Vista/Tobin Hill area. We are also considering locations in the NE and NW areas of San Antonio. Any of these three locations could be the location of our first campus. Our strong preference, though, is to open the first school in the north downtown region and the next two in NE and NW areas of town in order to meet the clear demand demonstrated from these communities in our location survey results.
We hope to make a major facility announcement late this summer, and to begin holding monthly informational meetings at the site of the Great Hearts San Antonio campus #1!
