(Waupun) The Central Wisconsin Christian School Board of Directors has approved plans for a $3.5-million-dollar addition to their campus in Waupun.
Construction will start this spring on the three new classrooms being added to the Middle School wing on the northeast corner of the building, a section that formed the original Christian High campus constructed in 1957. A Learning Commons will be created and existing grades six-through-eight classrooms will be renovated and enlarged.
Also, two classrooms will be added to the Elementary wing, a portion of the building was built in 2010 as part of Central Wisconsin’s move to a single preK-through-12 campus.
In addition, the project will see the construction of a new bus garage on campus, and renovations of their parking, playground, practice field along with modifications to the space for their Educational Student Services program. Another component of the project is the creation of an AgProTech program, which is intended to enhance agricultural, technical, and professional offerings with an expansion of an internship program that puts students into area businesses.
CWC Administrator Mark Buteyn says the school has seen an increase in our enrollment since their move to one campus giving rise to the need for additional classroom and special education space.
Fundraising for the project reached their goal of 70-percent after a recent 21-Day Challenge matched a $250,000 gift with more than $400,000 in donations. Director of Advancement Gregg Zonnefeld said the school was overwhelmed by the dedicated financial support.
Construction will begin following a planned groundbreaking ceremony which is slated for Monday on April 1st 6:30 PM. Completion and occupancy in targeted for mid-August.
