Teachers and volunteers on Monday night showed off the newly opened high school building, a modern and colorful space with 31,000 square feet, 17 classrooms, state-of-the-art science labs and additional space for the growing private school.
Enrollment at the high school is 279 this year, with a total of 879 enrolled in elementary, middle and high school grades. Students travel from across the metro area to attend classes.
Jay Lemon, secretary of the school's board of directors, told the crowd the building is phase one of three planned for the high school, 4680 E 2nd St.
“Things continue to grow, and God continues to show His blessing,” Lemon said.
A performing arts auditorium, track and field, tennis courts and field house also are in store for the Christian school.
“It's a great honor to be able to serve and continue what people began 42 years ago,” Lemon said. “It's fun to put one more piece of the puzzle together right now.”
