"Monument Academy PCS, which will operate as a weekday boarding school, seeks to serve 160 students in grades 5-8 who are currently in the foster care system or who have touched the system. It is the first program of its kind in the District geared towards this population of students, which typically has poor outcomes in traditional school environments. Monument Academy staff will be specifically trained to provide students with intensive social supports, alongside a strong academic program. Community College Preparatory Academy adds an adult education component to the site and will operate two sessions per day serving approximately 50 adults seeking to complete their high school equivalency examination and to equip themselves with the skills necessary to move into the workforce and post-secondary opportunities."
