MSA New Campus

Dear Santa Clara parents, students and families,

Thank you for your timely responses to the survey we sent out on Wednesday regarding a new location for our school. Based on your overwhelming support for the proposed site, we’re happy to announce that we have signed a lease for a new facility at the National Hispanic University campus in San Jose, which will allow us to continue to provide a top-notch education to our students.

The National Hispanic University campus is located at 14271 Story Road in San Jose. In an effort to reduce any inconvenience to our families and make the transition to a new campus as seamless as possible, we will provide free daily busing to and from last year’s campus and the new location. We will follow up in a few days with a survey regarding transportation needs so that we can plan the bus route.

The National Hispanic University campus is home to various community-service organizations including the university’s school of education as well as the Hispanic University Foundation, which is creating a unique pre-k to college educational pipeline with a concentration on achievement, advancement and civic engagement. We will now have the opportunity to work with these dynamic organizations to enhance the services we bring to our students.

Thank you for your unwavering loyalty and support over the past several months. Our goal is to provide our families with a high-quality education that continues to distinguish MSA Santa Clara as one of the highest-performing schools in our neighborhood. We’re looking forward to yet another fantastic year and continuing the work to prepare our students for success in college and beyond.
