Speak Up Today for City Approval of the Mater Brickell Preparatory Academy School Project

Brickell families and residents, WE NEED YOU! To make our dream of a new Mater Brickell Preparatory Academy a reality we need your input TODAY.

Brickell has quickly become one of Miami’s most rapidly growing areas and a focal point for new businesses, young professionals, and growing families. The growth and transformation of the area has exacerbated the need for a high-quality educational option for the children of the urban core. With options limited and thousands of student stations needed immediately, BHA believes Mater Academy is uniquely able to deliver a high-quality, tuition-free, public charter school option to the Brickell community and surrounding areas.

Mater Academy is proposing a state-of-the-art K-12 academic campus on land it already owns in the heart of Brickell. The Mater Brickell urban campus will bring together components of the existing neighborhood while incorporating elements of the newer, more contemporary developments of the Brickell area.

Recently our friends from Mater Academy, Inc. submitted a Warrant Application to the City of Miami’s Planning Department as part of the approval process for the proposed Mater Brickell Preparatory School project.

BHA and our friends at Mater Academy invite and encourage you to share your thoughts and comments on this important issue with the City’s Planning Department and public officials. Below you will find a link to a sample letter you can adapt to shape your message of support for our areas new school. BHA encourages you to share your thoughts today with city officials on this important project by emailing your support letter to Mr. Francisco Garcia at fgarcia@miamigov.com and Mr. Derrick Cook at dcook@miamigov.com.

All children deserve access to high-quality public education. We encourage you to share this important information with your neighbors and other community stakeholders to ensure their comments are also heard in this process. Working together we will ensure this lofty goal becomes a reality soon for families living in Miami’s urban core.
