Here at Sparkflight, we design spaces of learning and play for children and families in need as part of our commitment to the community. Our joy is collaborating with educators to discover how the built environment can support their educational mission. We partner with developers who serve students that qualify for the National School Lunch Program and Title 1. Our services range from entitlements and pre-design to permitting and construction administration. We are available to advise charter founders and boards as they embark on the development process.
Battle Born Academy
Our most recent project is with Battle Born Academy, a school focused on project-based learning. Its founders strongly believe that all children can and will love school when strong academic supports are combined with student-led inquiry, a focus on social-emotional learning, and strong values that create a community of learners and leaders. Sparkflight developed concepts for the conversion of a 30-year-old 17,000 SF warehouse building, including daylit and garden spaces. This school is projected to serve 540 students in East Las Vegas at full build-out and is planned to open in the upcoming year.

Operated as a tuition-free school, Futuro Academy developed over six years through multiple phases and ongoing projects for the 46,000 SF school. Sparkflight guided the design process to transform a former grocery store on approximately 4.6 acres of land. Resources include daylit classrooms, a health center, and a multi-purpose room with an adjacent food service area. This project serves 586 students.
