“What a privilege it is to chair this event, alongside the amazing staff and our headmaster, Jim Koan, at CCS. We are excited to bring local food trucks and one exciting truck from Atlanta to offer different cuisine on the property of this future location!
Having my children at CCS, and one in preschool, this project is so close to my heart. Not only will it benefit my children academically, spiritually, physically and emotionally but, it will allow more children in the Chattahoochee Valley to have the same opportunity. This expansion preschool project, I believe, is so vital to the growth of our school! I am so grateful for the opportunity my children have at CCS, and I would love to see more space for more families. “ -Lindsey Morgan, Taste a Truck Chairperson and Calvary Christian School Parent
How will the preschool project enhance the mission of Calvary Christian School?
CCS will renovate the existing 9000 square feet building at the rear of the property into 12 classrooms designed for children ages 3 to 5. We will build an additional 6000 square feet of educational support space: offices, reception, indoor play space, and a 13th classroom. A state of the art preschool playground will round out the educational experience for our students. When completed, the new preschool building will have 13 classrooms, providing quality Christian preschool education to 176 students in grades K3, K4 and Kindergarten.
How will this benefit the entire Calvary Christian School student body?
These moves will provide expanded classroom options for principals and allow CCS to grow to three sections at each grade level. This will allow room for fine arts and Discovery School to expand as well. When all grades are at their capacity, it is projected CCS can accommodate an increase of nearly 300 students over current capacity and move us closer to our goal of 1000 students.
- 176 in the Preschool (13 sections)
