News Update

Dear Parents,
We want to share with you that Clarfield Farm will be closing and no longer sharing our campus. We are disappointed that a campus usage agreement could not be met. At South Columbus Preparatory Academy, our highest priorities are the safety and education of our students, and we were no longer able to support the electricity and water utility expenses consumed by farm operations without a usage agreement. We wish Urban Farms of Central Ohio our best during this transition. Thank you for your support and understanding.
