Making Room for Growth is a $10 million capital campaign solving urgent needs by creating enough space for all to attend CCS. To make room, classrooms need to be added to our junior high building, and athletic fields need to be expanded and upgraded, allowing the mission of CCS to grow for current and future enrollment increases. Educational and athletic facility experts Jeff Brown Architecture and Absher Construction have designed the classroom wing of the junior high building and have created a master plan for the Fields of Dreams.
The junior high school is a 19,000 SQ FT classroom wing constructed on the north side of the gymnasium and is expected to cost $6.5 million. It includes 12 classrooms (3 core subject and 3 STEM labs, finished on the lower floor; 6 additional upstairs in the future), 4 restrooms (2 now and 2 in the future), an administrative office, a lobby, and an elevator. Construction on the core and shell of the classrooms is underway and is scheduled to be completed by Fall of 2022.
Fields of Dreams is the outdoor athletics component of CCS’s Making Room for Growth campaign, designed to meet the immediate need for over 800 student-athletes in the greater CCS community. The initial upgrade includes an artificial turf football/soccer/lacrosse field, a synthetic 8-lane rubber track and field components, lights, sound, scoreboard, public restrooms, concessions, storage, and spectator seating for 900 people. Estimated to cost $3.5 million, construction could potentially begin in Fall 2022. Future upgrades include artificial turf baseball and fastpitch infields; a shared artificial turf or grass outfield large enough for football, soccer, or lacrosse; and tennis courts.
