Opened in 2014, Westview Freedom Academy was created to provide Windsor's west side with a comprehensive high school (Grades 9-12) following the closure of J.L. Forster and Century secondary schools
The building at 1375 California Avenue has previously been the home of Cal Tech, William Hands Vocational School and Century Secondary School. In order to accommodate its offering of academic, applied and vocational programs and to reflect its new identity, a series of renovations were planned and funding was approved by the Ontario Ministry of Education.
The work began prior to the start of the 2014-15 school year with the construction of new science labs on the second floor. The second phase of the project includes new classrooms, offices, a music room, and a make-over for the gymnasium.
Pictures of the work begun in the Spring of 2015 and continuing throughout the summer are posted below.
