A School Designed

from the Ground Up

As part of delivering a truly innovative educational experience, the new school ­­— designed from the ground up — will be a state-of-the-art facility with remarkable features that enhance student learning experiences. The 78,000-square-foot school will feature 27 classrooms, a gymnasium, cafeteria, as well as multiple collaborative learning spaces. An adjacent exhibit and learning space will offer three multipurpose classrooms and provide students and staff with direct access to the Flint Institute of Music and Sloan Museum.

A large informal gathering space links to Sloan Museum and the Flint Institute of Music, creating a smooth transition for students and guests.

FCCA Class Cluster Exterior View

Nearly all classrooms are clustered into three adjoining classrooms by grade level and expressed here in two-story curved wall panels, angled for southern glass exposure.

FCCA East Glass Wall Exterior View

Curved glass walls create a visual separation of classroom functions from the linear metal panel expression of the gym and cafeteria.

FCCA Main Street

This two-story public gathering space separates the more public areas like the cafeteria and gymnasium from classrooms and is the hub that ties it all together including a Learning Stair.

FCCA Site Plan

The Flint Cultural Center Academy is strategically located to create direct access to both Sloan Museum and the Flint Institute of Music. A new Flint Cultural Center campus entry helps to move visitors through the campus and to parking.
