1968-1978 – Transforming G.A.

The Gustavus Adolphus (G.A.) Children’s Home is rebuilt. The 1960’s were a transition period for the Children’s Home as the Home became a treatment center for youth with family and social challenges.  A five section building was erected replacing the original structure. A stand-alone Gustavus Adolphus Learning Center is constructed. The construction of the Gustavus Adolphus Learning Center provided a means for a comprehensive program of remedial and special educational opportunities for the members of the Children’s Home program, for grades five through nine.  (Presently the Learning Center provides academic opportunities throughout twelfth grade.)
