Hmong College Prep Academy Phase V

Saint Paul, MN

Hmong College Prep Academy is a growing charter school that relocated to an existing building and has been remodeling to fit their expanding program ever since. The building was originally a health club and required substantial work to accommodate the vibrant elementary, middle, and high school programs. Through 5 phases of renovations and new construction, the Kodet Team collaborated with the Hmong College Prep community, staff, and stakeholders to identify opportunities and deficiencies within the existing health club building to build a campus for the Academy. We connected through listening sessions to engage the community and develop a more robust understanding of the school’s unique vision to create a community and cultural home for the area’s Hmong population.
