Daley announces $1M grant for expansion of AIM Academy

WHITEMARSH TOWNSHIP, Dec. 8 – State Rep. Mary Jo Daley, D-Montgomery, today announced that the AIM Academy has been awarded $1 million in state funds for redevelopment and expansion projects from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program.

The grant will go toward a new two-story addition to the academy, including new classroom spaces, offices and collaboration spaces, as well as replacing a parking lot with green space.

“AIM Academy’s use of novel and innovative means of teaching is helping our young people achieve long-term success,” said Daley. “I’m delighted to see the academy receive this money and continue to grow in being a top-tier institution in our community.”

AIM Academy is a Research-to-Practice School focusing on children in grades 1-12 with language-based learning differences.

Other projects at AIM Academy impacted by this funding will include renovations to the existing training and board rooms, cafeteria, and kitchen, as well as changes to the building’s fourth floor and lighting replacements.
