Family Life Academy Charter School II


Opening in 2018 FLACS Middle School Campus


Breaking Ground for Expansion

On November 10, 2017, Family Life Academy Charter Schools had a ground-breaking ceremony for its new FLACS Middle School Campus, which will be located at 316 East 165th Street in the Morrisania section of the South Bronx.

“In an effort to continue to provide excellent education to our students, the Board of Trustees of Family Life Academy Charter Schools started discussing options the last few years,” said Board of Trustees Chairman President, Miguel Peña. “It was resolved three years ago that the best way to accommodate our growing student population was to expand into a new facility.”

Founded in 2000 by Reverend Raymond Rivera, FLACS opened its first school, FLACS 1 in 2001, and since has inaugurated FLACS 2 and FLACS 3, and will continue with the expansion of a new Middle School Campus.
The new FLACS middle school campus will be a 4-story, 56,000 sq. ft. Charter School providing students with various amenities including a High School regulation gymnasium, cafeteria on the first floor, and numerous classrooms and offices on the remaining floors. The school is slated for completion in time for the 2018 academic school year, accommodating approximately 650 students.
The ground-breaking ceremony marked a special milestone, bringing together our founder, the Board of Trustees, the FLACS leadership, Schoolhouse Project, Highmark School Development, LLC, Hollister Construction Services, various project design and engineering professionals and local community.
