Ave Maria campus in Ypsilanti sold to Ann Arbor firm SchoolPictures.com.

(October 29, 2007) A sales agreement is in place to purchase the campus of the former Ave Maria college on West Forest Avenue in Ypsilanti. The purchaser is Skip Cerier from SchoolPictures.com a clearing house and processor of school pictures. Cerier says they have over 3 million pictures and provide service to some 400 schools in the region. Cerier says they have been on-line for some two years now and shot over 80 schools last year.

Currently based in Ann Arbor, Cerier says he has been looking for some time for a location that was based in a college town. Cerier spoke highly of his work with City Planner Karen Hart and her recommendation to purchase the Ave Maria property but was skeptical about the location. But after touring the property, he thinks it will be a perfect fit.

Cerier did not disclose terms of the deal but did indicate that the property would go back on the tax rolls.
