The final structural beam was put in place for the expanded Alexandria City High School Minnie Howard Campus earlier this week.

The laying of the last beam represents a milestone in the construction of the expansion project, which will increase the school’s capacity to 1,600 students and change the school from just 9th-grade students to all high school grades.

The project broke ground last March and is scheduled to open in the 2024-2025 school year.
