Providence Christian Academy will celebrate the completion of a 4,200 square foot addition to the current school building with a Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting on August 27 at 9:00 a.m. The many months of planning, constructing and designing every detail of the new additions are now complete.
“This is an exciting time for Providence Christian Academy,” says Butch Vaughn, Headmaster of PCA. “We invite our parents, grandparents and the community to come and celebrate the completion of our beautiful new buildings.”
The two new buildings will allow PCA to house additional classes from pre-K through high school. The buildings have been designed to provide separate, defined areas within the school for elementary, middle and high school students. In order to visually reinforce PCA’s commitment to the Classical model of education, separate hallways within PCA have been labeled as School of Grammar, School of Logic, and School of Rhetoric.
The new building located in the front of the campus serves as the new main entrance for the school and houses all School of Grammar elementary classes. The new front building features skylights in the entrance, an enclosed elementary courtyard, and cheerful, light-filled classrooms, all designed to provide a welcoming and caring learning environment for students. The building includes 25 additional classrooms, a library/ media center, and a new front office with a conference room and additional office spaces.
The new building at the back of the campus includes two new music classrooms, two new art classrooms, a kiln room, boys’ and girls’ home and away locker rooms, a weight room, and a new multi-purpose room.
The new multi-purpose room features a specialized floor that will allow the space to be utilized as a lunchroom, gymnasium and theater space. It is equipped with sound-absorbing features including acoustical ceiling tiles to allow for optimum sound quality during presentations and special events. The room also features a new serving line and food storage spaces in order to allow for expanded food options at lunch.
The building that now houses all Upper School classes has been renovated with new paint, carpet, and storage areas. The Upper School building includes Upper School offices, the middle school School of Logic, and the high school School of Rhetoric.
A new Lower School driveway entrance has been added in order to provide a separate area for Upper School and Lower School drop off and pick up. New parking spaces at the front of the building offer convenient parking areas for parents and visitors.
