The Lionel Wilson College Preparatory Academy, operated by Aspire Public Schools, serves 450 students in grades 6-12. The project utilizes a pre-engineered metal building, composed of four wings, joined through linked corridors, flanking a central courtyard. The open corridors promote exchange and interaction, integrating the lobby, commons, and three small library alcoves, distributed throughout the campus. 

The school’s unique program includes multi-disciplinary classrooms, science labs, a computer lab, and art room. Each upperclassman is allocated an open ‘Study Carrel’, complete with access to traditional office equipment. Here, they work on class assignments, and personal internship programs, serving as a model to passing younger students.
