A new charter school is set to open in St. Paul this fall. The Journey School is 10 years in the making and the brainchild of long-time educators Scott Gostchock and Michelle Cambrice.
“Our dream to open a school where any student has the opportunity to succeed has become a reality and we’re so excited to share our vision with the community,” said Cambrice, who has been appointed the school’s first director.
The dream gained momentum when The Journey School leased the former Central Lutheran School building at 775 Lexington Parkway in St. Paul, which closed last year. The building has since gone through renovations in preparation for the fall opening.
“The Journey School is located in a diverse area where we can reach more children and provide resources,” said Cambrice. “Choosing the right school for a child is one of the most important decisions parents will make. At the Journey School, we will partner with parents and the community to equip each student with the knowledge and skills necessary for their life-long journey of learning.”
In addition to offerings classes for K-2, The Journey School has also partnered with Head Start to provide childcare.
The school is hosting three open house events at the newly renovated building this month — July 13, 20, and 27. All open house events are from 9 am— 3 pm. Families are welcome to tour the new school, get to know the staff and school board and enroll their student(s).
