Two Eastbank Collaborative of Charter Schools members are moving to a new home for the holidays! Audubon Charter School is excited to announce its move of the Upper School Campus (Grades 4-8) from its current location on Carrollton Ave. to its newly renovated campus at 1111 Milan St. (the former McDonogh 7 campus).

Teachers will remain at the school packing their classrooms through December 20 with the moving company arriving after Christmas. All teachers and staff will help with the move to the new building, with teachers returning on January 6 to unpack the new location before students return on January 9.
“This is the best present we can get this holiday season,” said Audubon Charter Principal Janice Dupuy. "Having our students settled into the new location as soon as possible is an important component in finishing this school year strong.”
