MOUNT PLEASANT — The Renaissance School, 6150 Taylor Ave., is joining with the Lutheran Urban Mission Initiative Inc., according to a press release.
The Lutheran Initiative is an urban nonprofit in metro Milwaukee, which will be providing business, administrative and academic services to the Renaissance School, according to the release.
The release stated that students will see no immediate changes.
"It is our plan to transition Renaissance into a Lutheran school, but we don't have a specific time frame for doing that," said Dick Laabs, president of LUMIN. He added that the transition will take place over the course of the academic year.
The release stated that the partnership is coming after more than a year of research by Renaissance.
“LUMIN brings so much to our students, their families and the overall Racine community,” said Frank Trecroci, founder of Renaissance, in the release. “LUMIN will implement Christian-based curricula including a Biblically based character development program.”
Laabs said that all Renaissance staff will remain in place, though Kelleah Lewis will be serving as the new principal and Tiffany Venegas will be the new dean of students.
