TUCSON, Arizona – Brand Properties, LLC (Scott Brand) of Salt Lake City, UT bought 12.48 acres at Sorrento Square for $2.1 million ($3.86 PSF) for a new Leman Academy of Excellence Charter School.

The tuition-free charter school began as a K-6 school in 2014 and has grown to become a full K-8.

The Leman Academy is named for Kevin Leman, a renowned psychologist and author. He has become a radio and television personality, educator, speaker, and author of over 45 books on parenting, marriage and family living.

The idea is to create a learning environment based on a Classical Education platform. Classical Education is based on the three stages of learning: grammar, logic and rhetoric and is rooted in integrating the various subjects thematically, providing a tie between subjects.

The site is at approximately 10142 E Golf Links Road in Tucson and will be its third school in metro Tucson, with a fourth school in Sierrra Vista. Other locations include Marana and Oro Valley were also  built-to-suits while the school in Sierra Vista was a retrofit to an existing school building.
