RCP marks Ryan's third K-12 project in collaboration with NEI in the Nashville region, where the company will serve as the general contractor. The second project, a 93,400-square-foot expansion of Nashville Collegiate Prep's middle school building, began construction earlier this year and is on track to be completed in time for the 2024 school year. Ryan completed work on Nashville Collegiate Prep's K-5 building in the summer of 2021.
With RCP, NEI aims to expand education choices for families and support Rutherford County's rapidly growing public school system. The charter school will incorporate a collaborative teaching approach in which different academic levels will receive their education in large conjoint classrooms with flexible areas for group learning.
"We are proud to embark on our third charter school project in the Nashville community in partnership with NEI," said Max Bosso, Ryan's Vice President of Real Estate Development. "As one of the top builders of charter schools in the Southeast, Ryan looks forward to applying our expertise to deliver a next-generation educational environment that enables teachers to instruct effectively and students to learn without constraints."
