On a beautiful spring morning, SCG team members Randy, Caroline, and Alec joined Turner Impact Capital CEO Bobby Turner, tennis legend Andre Agassi, and local dignitaries for the opening of new facilities for Rocketship Infinity Community Prep in Washington D.C.’s Fort Totten neighborhood.
The school was developed by the Turner-Agassi Education Facilities Fund, which facilitate the development of best-in-class schools in underserved communities across the United States. Longtime SCG client Turner Impact Capital – the nation’s largest private equity real estate firm exclusively dedicated to social impact – is on course to develop and deliver 120 schools for leading charter school operators throughout the United States, many of which SCG has helped highlight.
The festive ribbon-cutting included remarks from Bobby and Andre, Rocketship leaders, community members, and a student dance performance. The state-of-the-art 56,000-square-foot campus currently serves 235 students in pre-kindergarten to 3rd grade with a focus on STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math), on its way to eventually serving students through fifth grade.
Congratulations to the Turner-Agassi Fund on another successful school opening!
