LOCAL BRIEFS: Crossings Christian School breaks ground

Oklahoman Published: November 1, 2008

Crossings breaks ground

Crossings Christian School recently held a ground-breaking celebration for the construction of an upper school building on property adjacent to the school, 14400 N Port-land Ave.

About $7.8 million has been raised in a capital campaign that began in spring 2008. The amount raised to date will allow construction to begin on a 60,000-square-foot facility featuring 27 classrooms, three science lecture rooms and two science labs. A broadcast media room, library facilities and spaces for art, music, band and orchestra also will be included in the project.

Fundraising will continue to complete the school’s goal to build a commons area and gymnasium for the upper school and lower school multipurpose gym facilities and commons area. By completing the upper school building, Crossings will be able to accommodate students through 12th grade, with the first class graduating in 2012.
