Community Partnerships in Wilmington
Great Oaks – Wilmington is located in the Community Education Building (CEB) in the heart of Wilmington, DE. Previously owned by Bank of America, the eleven-story building was converted into a world- class education facility through the generosity of Bank of America and the Longwood Foundation. It currently serves as home to Great Oaks – Wilmington and another local charter school. The 281,000 sf facility has a cafeteria, library, music and dance rooms, an indoor play area, and health and wellness services that are used by our school community on a regular basis.
Great Oaks’ occupancy of space in the CEB is yet another realization of the part of our mission that calls for investment in the neighborhoods where our schools operate.
Great Oaks — Wilmington is housed in the Community Education Building, an 11-story, 281,000 sf building donated by Bank of America to provide space for Wilmington Schools.
AmeriCorps awarded our network a grant of over $10,000,000 this year, allowing us to deploy over 270 recent college graduates to serve our students as mentors. Many of these individuals will remain in the cities where they work after their year of service, positively impacting our schools and communities for years to come.
