Dear FSPA Families:
 
As some of you may have already noticed, great changes are taking place on the Flint Cultural Center Campus.  After years of planning, the Flint Cultural Center Charter Academy is finally underway, with completion planned for Summer 2019.  This new charter school will have a focus on the arts and sciences and will have an educational relationship with the art and science institutions that make up the Flint Cultural Center, giving its students unique and highly valuable learning opportunities.  The school will be built near Sloan Museum and the Flint Institute of Music, on the Chavez Dr. and Longway Blvd. section of the campus.  This new charter school is not connected with the Genesee County Arts Education and Cultural Enrichment Millage.    
 
The land is currently being cleared for the construction of the school.  For the next phase, the Forest St. entrance to the campus off of Longway Blvd. and some of the smaller roads through the campus will be closed.  These closures will start on MONDAY, JULY 16THIf you normally use this entrance to get to FIM, you can still get onto the campus from Longway Blvd.:
*Go past Forest St. and The Whiting parking lot to the next street where the Buick Gallery is            
  located.  Turn right onto Walnut St.  
*At the end of this short street, turn right onto Kearsley St. and continue on to the light at
   Kearsley and Crapo St. 
*Turn right onto Crapo St. to go around the FIM building to get to our parking lot entrance on
   Matthews St. 
Please see the attached map.  Follow the red route through the campus. 
 
If you normally access the campus and the FIM parking from Chavez Dr. and/or Crapo St., you will not be affected by any of the closures at this time.  The main entrance to the FIM parking lot on Matthews St. will be open. 
 
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our families and visitors!  We want to help make the changes to our campus – some permanent and some temporary – as stress-fee as possible for everyone.  Over the next year, we will keep you updated whenever changes occur that could affect you.  In the meantime, our staff is more than willing to answer any questions you may have.  Feel free to call us at (810) 238-1350 x3 or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
