When PAE moved to 14 Locust Street 4 years ago, the John T. Gorman Foundation funded a language learning lab to give wait-listed students the digital tools to start learning immediately. With thanks to support from the Sam L Cohen Foundation and the Harmon Foundation, the highly popular lab is moving to a more accessible, newly renovated space on the 1st floor. Talented students and alumni have designed the new space, provided tech expertise, and hauled equipment up the stairs. Here are the student drawings of the space.
PAE envisions creating a Strategies Lab to build community for students whose prior experiences, schedules, or learning styles prevent them from completing high school credentials or preparing for college.
