A Groundbreaking Ceremony was held on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 for the new 10,000 square foot academic building at Park Place Christian Academy. The new addition will have 10 classrooms that will house grades 7 – 12, a reception area, bathrooms and principal’s office. This facility is part of the long range strategic plan for the school that currently has 647 students. Headmaster Ted Poore said that construction is scheduled to be complete in August for the new school year. Park Place Christian Academy was founded in 2000 and is a ministry of Park Place Baptist Church which strives to provide a distinctively Christian academically rigorous education for students in K3 – 12. Students attend weekly chapel services and are encouraged to establish and cultivate a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
