L.FRAZIER BANKS HIGH SCHOOL CAMPUS

GICTA

We will train adults, veterans, and even second chance offenders into a powerful workforce of many skills with the edge and creativity of the arts. We plan to restore our community as a school, rebuilding and using the over 35,000 abandoned homes in the city for student "hands on" training.  Our courses of study will feature 4-5 year programs such as, master builder, master plumber, master architect, etc. and an array of art and fine art based electives like visual art, painting, pottery, etc, because we believe that art and construction go hand in hand.
