Tahoe Expedition Academy (TEA) located in Kings Beach currently is working to relocate to the Martis Valley in Truckee, CA just south of Schaffer Mill Road, on a 42.15-acre site.
From their website: “Over the past several months, a team of architects led by Peter Pfau and Joe Schollmeyer, met with families, students, community members and school administrators to understand the DNA of TEA, our vision, and to collaborate on designing a new campus that honors our mission to rethink education.
This Master Plan, seeks to capture the unique aspects of TEA, while striving to be at the forefront of educational facility design. The plan is staggered over multiple phases that requires ongoing fundraising and enrollment growth. Please note this vision is aspirational. Individual building plans are not final, and may change based on budget, feedback from students, parents, donors or the community.”
The proposed school would include 16 individual buildings (1-2 story structures) totaling 112,800+/- square feet and include classrooms, admin offices, training facilities, common areas, a cafe, outdoor amphitheater, faculty housing, and student dormitories with on-site parking. The dormitories would house approximately 40 students and and faculty members during the school year.
