Brandon Helmer, 14, of Indiana visits Marco Island with his extended family, who supports the concept of a charter high school on Island specializing in the arts and sciences with a focus on sustainable, green living as presented by proponents of the plan Wednesday evening at Marco Island Charter Middle School.
Islanders learn about the bigger plans surrounding the initiative for a Marco Island charter high school June 25 at Marco Island Charter Middle School and at a Planning Board meeting Friday. Plans now include the Marco Island Academy as well as a summer eco-adventure camp and Marco Island Discovery Center, a center for sustainable living and education of all ages. Marco Island Discovery Center is also the name of the non-profit working on developing a charter high school on the Island. Finding land is the next challenge.
