Charlotte Christian School hosted a Topping Out Ceremony along with Rodgers Builders for the new Middle School Building that is slated to open in August 2022 for the 2022-23 school year. The new Middle School Building will be a two-story 23,000 square foot facility and will include a STEM/Innovations Suite with a dedicated robotics room and a STEM fabrication lab; a dedicated learning space and offices for the Academic Services Program; open space for student and staff collaboration; office space for both lower and middle school administration in addition to 13 classrooms.
Construction on the new area began in June 2021 as part of the school’s master campus plan. Participating in the topping out ceremony was Head of School Barry Giller; Board of Trustee Chair Brad Van Hoy; Middle School Principal Brooke Morgan; seventh grade student Andre Cox; senior and head prefect Olivia Jackson; Will Myer, Kelton Carpenter and Donald Alston of Rodgers Builders, general contractor; and donors. The ceremony celebrated the topping out or installation of the final piece of structure to the roof of the building. Charlotte Christian students and community members have signed the beams that will be included.
“We are grateful for this new addition to our campus and for God’s provision through the generosity of our donors,” shared Head of School Barry Giller. “We appreciate the relationships we have built over the last eight years with Rodgers Builders and LS3P in partnering with us to advance the footprint of our master campus plan. The Graham Middle School Building was the center of campus and our longest standing building and one that served us well for just under five decades. Our students are excited for this new building that will provide space for innovative learning in the middle school.”
