Proposed Projects

Monterey Bay Charter School

The Monterey Bay Charter School (MBCS) is a County of Monterey public, non-profit charter school with 501(c)(3) status. As part of the MBCS goal to support diversity and accessibility, the MBCS is proposing to relocate from its two existing locations Pacific Grove and Seaside to a more central location on the Monterey Peninsula on the California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) campus on the former Fort Ord, in Monterey County, California.

The proposed approximately 18-acre site would provide the required space for approximately 60,000 square feet of classrooms and support facilities and accommodate up to 508 kindergarten through eighth grade (K-8) students, which would allow for the consolidation of the two existing and separate campus locations as well as accommodate the growth from 362 students to 508.
