School Specialty and the College Football Playoff (CFP) Foundation were recently in Pasadena, California, to reveal a state-of-the-art media center for Eliot Arts Magnet Academy. This is the 45th collaboration with the CFP Foundation and their Extra Yard for Teachers Makeover Project aligning with School Specialty’s mission to “Transform More than Classrooms.”
Eliot Arts Magnet is a visual and performing arts academy that nurtures academic achievement through music, dance, visual arts, and theatre arts. Students focus on Common Core instruction through an arts lens by engaging in arts-integrated project-based learning. They receive real-world application opportunities through partnerships with renowned LA-area arts associations and consultants.
School Specialty’s purpose-driven brand is committed to supporting educators and students. Over the past year, School Specialty and our Projects by Design® team have worked with the school to design a space that better supports their goals and drives outcomes. Our goal was to support their unique style of teaching and learning. This new media center provides a contemporary, welcoming space with flexible seating options that inspire students to collaborate, learn, and grow.
Items provided by School Specialty include tables and seating from our Classroom Select® proprietary furniture line. Here are some examples of items used in the design of this collaborative space.
School Specialty and the CFP Foundation hold a long-standing relationship and partnership, with each entity holding a shared mission to improve educator resources and access to better learning opportunities for children.
Congratulations to Eliot Arts Magnet Academy on your new media center!
