LEAP Academy - STEM High School

A new 3-story school was built to support LEAP Academy's STEM program, which focuses on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The new facility includes classrooms, laboratories, a lecture hall, commercial kitchen/dining room, administrative and support space. The building is a steel structure with brick and stucco.

Fireplaces from the historic Chaney Mansion
were integrated into the new school.

The project involved demolition of seven vacant buildings, 3 of which were behind the façade of Camden's historic Chaney Mansion, which was preserved and integrated into the new structure. The preservation of the façade and other historical elements was a major concern to the owner and community. Five fireplaces from the original structure can be found in various locations throughout the school's interior halls and classrooms. Major infrastructure upgrades include new utilities and site improvements. The project was completed on time and within budget.
