Des Moines is an urban community located in the heart of Iowa. Des Moines Public Schools serves 32,000 students in a system with 62 buildings, including Central Campus--a Regional Academy. Central Campus is housed in four buildings, including the main campus at 1800 Grand located on the western edge of downtown Des Moines. As a regional academy, the building serves over 3000 students in a K-12 setting, including elementary and middle schools, and high school programs in Career and Technical Education, English Language Learners, and Future Pathways, a program for students at risk of dropping out. World Language and advanced academic programs are located at the Central Academy building, adjacent to the Grand building. The regional academy concept was developed to provide unique educational opportunities in an economically and academically efficient environment. In this article, the authors discuss how to connect students and create futures at Central Campus.
