(Memphis) It could have been a piece of blighted property in Whitehaven, but today what was once a popular private Catholic school is now a public charter school, City University.
City University is composed of three charter schools.
There's a high school with grades 9 through 12.
A boys' middle school grades 6 through 8 and a girl's middle school this year with sixth graders.
Founded in 2004, City University's focus is college preparatory.
Students are taught giving back and serving others is an important part of leadership and growth.
