Academy for Integrated Arts starts 2016-2017 Year in New Space
Charter School Moves to Larger Facility
by Sarah Cousineau
Principal Tricia DeGraffe with students It was a bright sunny fall day when I walked up the ramp and into the new Academy for Integrated Arts (AFIA) new elementary school at 7910 Troost. There is still some work to be done, but the students, staff and teachers are all busy learning and discovering. The staff had little more than 20 hours to move into the new space before the students arrived for the 2016-2017 start of the new school year.

The facility is the original home of King Louie East Bowling Alley, built in 1955. The building was chosen for its sound structure and shape, as well as its locational appeal in the south area of Kansas City. In addition, the large lot on the west side of the building has ample space for parking, playgrounds and community gardens. Working with the team at Kansas City-based Helix Architecture & Design, AFIA has plans to use the space for a modern configuration of common areas and classrooms, including new areas dedicated to music and fine arts.
