Ryan Companies Starts Construction on 56,000-Square-Foot Charter School Near Nashville

NASHVILLE, TN — Ryan Companies announces the groundbreaking of the 56,000-square-foot Rutherford Collegiate Prep (RCP) in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The school is the latest charter school offering in the region from Noble Education Initiative (NEI), a local nonprofit organization that manages four other public charter schools in the region, as the organization looks to expand educational options in the fast-growing community. Construction is set to be complete by July 2024. The charter school will initially serve 470 students in grades K-5.

RCP marks Ryan's third K-12 project in collaboration with NEI in the Nashville region, where the company will serve as the general contractor. The second project, a 93,400-square-foot expansion of Nashville Collegiate Prep's middle school building, began construction earlier this year and is on track to be completed in time for the 2024 school year. Ryan completed work on Nashville Collegiate Prep's K-5 building in the summer of 2021.

With RCP, NEI aims to expand education choices for families and support Rutherford County's rapidly growing public school system. The charter school will incorporate a collaborative teaching approach in which different academic levels will receive their education in large conjoint classrooms with flexible areas for group learning.

"We are proud to embark on our third charter school project in the Nashville community in partnership with NEI," said Max Bosso, Ryan's Vice President of Real Estate Development. "As one of the top builders of charter schools in the Southeast, Ryan looks forward to applying our expertise to deliver a next-generation educational environment that enables teachers to instruct effectively and students to learn without constraints."
