McKee Homes, in initital partnership with George McDougall High School, and the Rockyview School Division, is proud to announce the ongoing innovative and exciting program now entering its seventh year, called Building Futures. In 2019/20 we will again have students from Airdrie and Crossfield Rocky View High Schools working in our Coopers Crossing community near Reynolds Ranch as part of the program, building homes with us.
Building Futures teaches students home building from the foundation up. Students are introduced to every angle of home construction, in a classroom they help to build themselves, and in two new homes they help build to completion. All this, while getting their high school academic education right on site. It's a special program, and we’d like to thank our past and current partners and sponsors for their vision and support —and we’d like to congratulate and commend Building Futures students (now almost 200!) and their supportive parents for their initiative and belief in this innovative way of learning - not better or less than traditional school, but different.
You can follow each year's progress on our Facebook page and through Twitter on @mckeeairdrie and @buildfutures1
