MATER BRICKELL PREPARATORY ACADEMY
Mater Academy Foundation, Inc.
Civica Architecture - Julio Guillen
Mater Brickell Academy is a seven-story, tuition-free public charter school offering grades 6-12, and is preparing to open for the 2022-2023 school year in August. Housing 1,500 students and 90 faculty and staff members, the new school is a much-awaited addition to the Downtown/Brickell residential neighborhood and hopes to be the educational ecosystem for innovators and entrepreneurs.
The school is equipped with administrative offices, classrooms, laboratories, a parking garage, cafeteria, kitchen, a basement, and a gymnasium on the sixth floor.
This project is located within a dense residential neighborhood, adjacent to I-95, and near an apartment building, as well as a multi-story hotel. The site requires an extensive dewatering process. As Academica’s largest build to date, Mater Brickell Preparatory Academy will be an honorable addition to the Charter School division.
