March 2019 Update: Phase 2 was completed just in time for the beginning of classes. It was exciting to start the 2019 school year in January with additional new classrooms for our special education program (scroll below for a slideshow!)
Now it is on to Phase 3. But before we move on, let's take a moment to celebrate God's provision to this point. In 2015 we laid out the project of the school expansion which would provide facilities to not only add high school, but also to provide adequate space and
personalized classrooms and work areas for the special education program. It would also allow us to double our enrollment.
Phase 1—New School Bathrooms. This phase was completed in 2016.
Phase 2—Six New Classrooms … primarily for our special education program. The first-floor classrooms were finished in April 2017. The entire project was just completed in mid-January of this year.
Phase 3—A Three-Story Building with Classrooms and Offices. This building will become home to our pre-school and elementary school which will allow the present buildings to become available for our middle school and new high school students. The registration process for the high school is underway, and Lord willing, will be completed and approved in time for the 2020 school year.
The estimated cost for Phase 3 is $970,000. During the last quarter of 2018, we received $203,727! That reduced the amount that we need to $766,273 for completing the building. New Life Christian School is one of the important outreach ministries of New Life Children's Home. With Phases 1 and 2 now complete, our dreams of improved safety and security, the addition of high school classes, and an expanded special needs program seem more and more attainable. If you've experienced God laying a vision on your heart that seems to be too big for you, and then watch Him do it right before your eyes, you know how excited we are!
