New High School
A Bright Future for Hogan Prep!
On June 11th, 2021, Hogan Preparatory Academy Board & Superintendent broke ground on a new High School at the current high school location at 1221 E. Meyer Boulevard in Kansas City, Missouri. The new school will replace the existing structure, originally built in 1940, with a north edition added in 1946. The building is intended to open for the Fall 2023 school year.
Hogan’s new High School is designed to meet the needs of 21st century students, accommodating individual, small, and large group learning. Spaces are flexible and designed for multiple uses, which supports Hogan’s model of instruction which focuses on an individualized learning plan for every
student. This learning plan is supported by an advocacy model designed to promote social-emotional health as well as academic success.
Designed to accommodate up to 460 students
The new facility allows Hogan to increase their High School capacity by 20%. The new facility will take advantage of steel building construction, and allow for greater flexibility for planned future growth, and other innovative amenities.
Dr. Jayson Strickland, HPA Superintendent shares that "this new high school represents not just a building, but Hogan Prep's investment in our students and their individual needs. The modern building and spaces will facilitate hands-on, 21st century learning, and we are excited to begin this journey with and for the entire Kansas City community."
Along with the attendance of Dr. Jayson Strickland, HPA Superintendent and Dr. Mary Viveros, HPA Board President, other participants include Edward Wright, HPA High School Principal, Awais Sufi, CEO of SchoolSmart KC, Cheryl Humann, Project Manager for KLS, McCownGordon Construction, and
Gastinger Walker Architects.
