A community-wide celebration marked the opening of “Faubion School + Concordia University, a 3 to PhD® community” Tuesday, August 30. The new education model and facility in Northeast Portland facility is the first completely new ground-up construction of a Portland public school in 20 years, thanks to a bond passed by Portland voters in 2012. The Portland Public Schools bond provided $38.3M, while Concordia University Portland and its supporters contributed an additional $15.5M plus land.

The new building also includes an early childhood education center for up to 120 children, a 2,500 square foot Kaiser Permanente 3 to PhD Wellness center serving Faubion students and Concordia students; mental and behavioral health by Trillium Family Services; and a food club with healthy, organic foods by basics; in addition to the full preK-8 Faubion School and Concordia University classrooms, conference rooms, and faculty office spaces.
