On Tuesday, August 22, 2023, St. Augustine Preparatory Academy (Aug Prep) celebrated the grand opening of its new $49 million elementary school and expansion of existing facilities.
These additions to Aug Prep's campus on Milwaukee's South Side will provide the capacity to serve 900 additional students.
The new 123,000-square-foot building will house Aug Prep's K4 through 5th grade classrooms and will increase Aug Prep's enrollment capacity to 2,400 students, making it the largest single-campus school in Milwaukee next year. The new elementary school includes state-of-the-art classrooms and multipurpose spaces along with a library, music wing, full-sized gymnasium, an auxiliary gym, a rooftop play space, as well as a performing arts center with seating for 600.
VJS served as the general contractor for this project and Korb + Associates Architects was the designer.
