AAEC Early College High Schools is building a $7M campus next to Mesa Community College.

The charter school will have about 300 slots for incoming freshmen through seniors. Students will occupy Mesa Community College classrooms while their new high school is built on an adjacent site.

DLR Group has been selected as the architect to design the new campus, but a general contractor has not yet been selected. The bidding list will be narrowed to three finalists, said Linda Proctor Downing, founder of the AAEC charter school system.

The project will be financed through municipal bonds, she said.

Total enrollment at the AAEC schools is about 1,680 students, with each campus enrolling anywhere between 200 and 480 students and employing no more than 20 at each campus.
