CenClear unveils plans for former Penn-Grampian Elementary School
GRAMPIAN - CenClear, an early education provider, has announced that the former Penn-Grampian Elementary School will be the new home for its Early Head Start, Head Start, Pre-K and Family Center.
According to court records, CenClear purchased the building in May and the deal was finalized with the Curwensville Area School District in June, with the purchase price being $100,000.
The former elementary school will allow for CenClear to house preschool and early education programs in just one building instead of two.
"With our programs expanding and growing like they are, we had two buildings that our classrooms operated from," case manager Kilee Keith said. "When this building became available, we thought it would be a great opportunity to condense and put all of our classrooms under one building."
CenClear officials said that this will allow for 75 additional children from the Grampian, Curwensville and Mahaffey areas to have access to early education programs that were not previously allotted.
In addition to the education programs and Family Center, CenClear will be able to house its Center Intermediate Staff Unit there, which allows for a collaboration of services.
CenClear will host an open house Sept. 6 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
