FRUITLAND, Ida. — Treasure Valley Classical Academy is shifting the opening of its new school by one week to finalize renovations to its building. The K-6 school based in Fruitland will now open August 22, starting the same week as the Fruitland School District.
TVCA was originally set to welcome students back on August 15. The tuition-free public charter school will be located in Fruitland’s historic Olde School building, which is in the final stages of extensive renovation.
“While we realize this delay may be inconvenient for some of our families, we believe this change is in the best interests of the school community,” said TVCA Principal Stephen Lambert. “The school building is in the final stages of development and renovation, and a few extra days will help us put the finishing touches on the building. When school begins, the building will be safe, welcoming, and ready for students.”
The school will now host an All-School Open House for all parents and students on Thursday, August 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the first day of school on Friday, August 23. Students and parents are required to attend the Open House on August 22 to meet and visit with teachers and to learn more information about the school.
“Our entire staff and School Board remain committed to bringing classical education to the Fruitland community,” Lambert said. “We can’t wait to see our new students and families when we open our doors August 22nd.”
