New charter school coming to San Antonio

Carpe Diem Innovative Schools will develop a new $7.25 million charter school campus in San Antonio that will accommodate as many as 400 middle and high school students by the fall 2015-2016 school year.

Construction on the 42,888-square-foot Westwood campus will begin on Saturday, May 2 at 8038 W. Military Drive.

The whole campus will be equipped with electronics that will allow students to work independently on digital curriculum. Teachers assess students at their performance level and then develop individual learning plans. Students will be put on accelerated learning tracks.

By the fall of 2015, Carpe Diem Innovative Schools also will have locations in Indianapolis and Cincinnati.
