The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) will begin work on a 681-seat school building for the Medgar Evers College Preparatory School.
The building will replace eight transportable classroom units provided by CUNY that will be demolished prior to construction. The new facility will also include a competition-sized gymnasium with locker rooms for high school use, science labs, and 50,000 sq. ft. of space to be used by CUNY.
The building will be located adjacent to the school’s current site at 1186 Carroll St. with expected occupancy for the start of the 2025 school year. Design for the five-story building will start next spring with construction set to begin in 2022.
The new building will be a fully air conditioned, accessible facility for students, and will have 22 classrooms and four science labs. Additional amenities include a resource room, supervisory office, staff lunch/conference room and space for bicycle storage.
