Pinecrest Academy Cadence Campus Breaks Ground

At an event on March 31, Andre Agassi of the Turner-Agassi Charter School Facilities Fund and City of Henderson Mayor Andy A. Hafen, along with Pinecrest Academy Principal Jessica LeNeave, and The LandWell Company CEO Mark Paris, gathered to celebrate the official groundbreaking of the new Pinecrest Academy campus located at Cadence, a 2,200-acre planned community in Henderson.

“With the new Pinecrest campus opening this fall, residents at Cadence and others living nearby in Henderson will soon have another solid education option for their children,” said Mark Paris, CEO of Cadence developer The LandWell Company. “This August, we look forward to welcoming the first of many Pinecrest faculty, teachers, families and students to Cadence.”

“Opening a new school in my hometown of Las Vegas is always an incredible feeling,” said Andre Agassi, Co-Managing Partner of the Turner-Agassi Charter Schools Facilities Fund and CEO of Agassi Ventures. “Schools are an investment in our future and provide opportunities for families to grow and flourish. Pinecrest Cadence in Henderson is an example of a great institution providing students a top-tier education.”

“Pinecrest’s team of educators, led by Dr. Carrie Buck, realize that the vast majority of careers that our students will enter do not even yet exist,” said Jessica LeNeave, M.S., M. Ed., Principal of Pinecrest Cadence. “The new Cadence campus gives us the opportunity to invite families to continue their educational journey with us all the way from Pre-Kindergarten through high school graduation. Pinecrest has become a family that I am proud to be a part of.”

Phase I of the Pinecrest Academy Cadence Campus, a public choice, tuition-free charter school, will open in August 2016, initially enrolling 900 students in Kindergarten through ninth grade. Each subsequent year, the new school will add a year of high school until it reaches grade 12.

The first phase also includes the elementary school’s multipurpose room, with a basketball court and stage, as well as a synthetic turf play. Phase I includes part of the middle and high school complex, including an administration facility for the middle and high schools.

When all phases of construction are complete, the collective campus will boast 201,400 square feet of learning and activity space.
