In early 2015, Metrolina Christian Academy launched its first on-campus construction project, the Limitless Building Campaign. The scope of the project adds nearly 30,000 sq. ft. of educational space plus a much needed 8-lane track & field facility for our students. The goal is to build debt-free and have all construction completed by 2019.
Phase 1: Math & Science Building and
Phase 2: Visual Arts & Technology Building
Complete and Debt-Free...
The Limitless Building Campaign is reshaping Metrolina's campus, expanding our community and enhancing the quality of programs available for all age groups for many years to come. Metrolina has always been a place where we have seen our students soar academically, and more importantly, blessed to see God move powerfully in their lives. It is our desire to use new buildings to further enhance our ability to equip our students with the skills needed to be great servant leaders in the 21st century. Our desire for the facility expansion is best expressed by the truth found in Proverbs 24:3-4.
"A house is built by wisdom and becomes strong through good sense. Through knowledge its rooms are filled with all sorts of precious riches and valuables."
As these verses state, indeed, our students are precious to us. We believe providing them with a Christian education and equipping them with a Biblical worldview will not only impact them eternally but also impact our culture eternally.
Like most Christian schools, the majority of Metrolina Christian’s revenues come from tuition and its annual giving, the Cornerstone Fund. These funds alone will not provide for all of the long term resources needed to advance the school through building projects such as this.
As a school, Metrolina Christian has been blessed with so many generous donors who have made our growth possible. In fact, we came together as a school family from 2010- 2014 and made the dream of an outdoor athletic facility a reality. God provided for this $1.4 million dollar complex in four years, debt free.
Now, we are asking the MCA family to come together again in the Limitless Building Campaign and help develop these new educational facilities - also debt free. [Update: Since breaking ground in June of 2015, MCA has completed Phase 1 (Math & Science building) and Phase 2 (Visual Arts & Technology building). The buildings added over 13,000 sq. ft. of classroom space to our campus at a cost of $1.3 million dollars and, they were completed debt-free.]
Although buildings are only a part of what makes a school outstanding, we do believe they are critical for our growth and a continued dynamic learning environment. And we believe …
"Now unto Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think." - Ephesians 3:20
PHASE 3: Performing Arts/STUDENT Center
This project includes the construction of a proposed building for Performing Arts with multi-purpose space. This 15,400 sq. ft. addition will provide classrooms for band, dance and vocal music, as well as a huge multi-purpose room with a stage to serve as a performing arts theatre for events. Daily, this area will be used as a new dining space for MCA's students. The dining area will be adjacent to our present FLC kitchen enabling MCA to provide more food service options during student lunches.
The goal for this $1.5 million project is to begin breaking ground during the summer of 2017 with a completion date on the spring of 2018.
PHASE 4: Track & Field Facility
A new Track & Field facility is planned for Phase 4 of the Limitless Building Campaign. Located on MCA's campus, this new facilty will include an 8-lane composite surface track (high school regulation) plus green space for Physical Education classes and additional practice fields for our athletic teams. Ths cost of this project is approximately $750,000 and constuction will begin after completion of Phase 3.
