When does the Culinary Arts Academy at Weaver High School (CAA) officially move to Lincoln Culinary Institute (LCI)?
LCI will open its doors to staff and students in mid-August. The target date is August 18. In the meantime all registrations and business can be conducted in the main office at the Granby Street location.
How long will CAA be housed at LCI?
The length of the lease with LCI is 4 years. It takes into account possible construction delays. IT is expected that the new Weaver building will open in September 2018. At that time CAA will move back.
What is the strategy for keeping the local community engaged?
The Weaver High School Principal. along with the Board of Education, and partner Community Based Organizations are committed to keeping the community informed and connected. Regularly schedule meetings, events, and forums will be planned to keep all connected and informed.
What is the plan for enrollment?
CAA enrollment will range from 280-300 students while the school remains at LCI. It is imperative that students remain in good academic standing, as there will be a wait list. Those who fall below the academic or behavioral standards established by CAA may be asked to find another school in order to make room for deserving students on the wait list. After the academy returns to the new building enrollment may exceed 450 students.

Students living more than 1.9 miles LCI will receive bus transportation. Students participating in the various after school programs will receive city bus tokens/passes for transportation home from school.
