Our Space in the City
Intellectual Virtues Academy (Academy), a new, tuition-free public high school, chartered by Los Angeles County Office of Education, is pleased to announce it has secured a location in the Wrigley/Washington neighborhoods of Long Beach. Instruction will begin on August 31, 2016 with two classes of ninth-graders at 1637 Long Beach Boulevard, Long Beach, California 90813It is virtually ready for the high school to move in without having to do a great deal of work.

The facilities committee began a thorough search of possible sites in late 2015, viewing over a dozen potential properties in several Long Beach neighborhoods. In May, the board narrowed the options down to three properties that had the greatest potential of meeting the needs of the school while staying within the budget. 
"We faced a great challenge," said board member Edward Castro. "We had to find a space that would not only accommodate our growth over the next four years, but satisfy our need for a space that facilitated learning well.”

“Because the site we pursued offered so many benefits to our prospective students and the landlord was very accommodating, we were extremely fortunate to be offered this flexible option,” said Eric Churchill, Board Chairman.

The location provides spacious classrooms, a front office, a counseling office, a nurses station, an indoor/outdoor lunch area, and staff work stations fully-built out. In future years, the Academy could have access to a fully-functional science laboratory, academic support rooms, a music/theater room, library, and study hall. The campus was recently purchased by Millworks, who transforms architecturally intriguing spaces for non-profit and community use.

The facility is located just off Pacific Coast Highway and Long Beach Boulevard, offering easy access to the school through the Blue Line and several different Long Beach Transit lines.

We are extremely excited to welcome the class of 2020 to their high school site. Stay tuned for information regarding our open house event in August.
