Fine Arts Capital Campaign

Fine Arts Educational Building Campaign

The Time is Now: Inspiring Creativity & Worship

The Woodlands Christian Academy has launched a capital campaign to raise $10.8 million to fund construction of a Fine Arts Educational Building and outdoor amphitheater, considered the highest priority in the campus master plan. This campaign will accommodate the growing needs of our Fine Arts Department and serve current and future students in our middle and high school, preparing the next generation to serve Christ’s eternal kingdom.

At Woodlands Christian, we affirm the Biblical teaching that our God is a creative God who created each one of us in His image. Therefore, we believe He wants our students to appreciate His creation while they discover and develop their own creative gifts and talents. A rich fine arts curriculum can become an integral part of a student’s well-rounded education and provide a powerful opportunity to glorify God. 

In the same way that different sports require specialized athletic venues, the disciplines of fine arts require unique and distinct classrooms. Thus, it is our goal to provide a state-of-the-art learning center where students can explore multiple avenues of creative expression, attain proficiency and pursue excellence in their areas of interest, and build confidence in themselves. Architects have designed a new 22,585 square foot, one-story Fine Arts Educational Building, which will be constructed to the west of the Nehemiah Academic Center, facing the Grove and overlooking both a section of woods and a to-be-built retention pond which will double as an outdoor amphitheater. 

The facility will accommodate all of our major fine arts specialties including theatre, band, choir, dance and the visual arts. It will also enable us to expand our student opportunities to include costume and set design and sound and lighting operations. The proposed design includes the largest black box theatre in the Houston area with the ability to seat up to 400 in a variety of configurations, an art studio, a dance studio, a choir hall, a band hall, one additional classroom, offices, changing rooms, storage areas, a lobby/reception area and multiple spaces for displaying student artworks.

Design and construction of the Fine Arts Building is estimated at $10,800,000. This includes costs of interest on a construction loan, site preparation, infrastructure, furniture, lighting and sound systems, soundproofing, contingencies, and other miscellaneous expenses associated with the project and campaign. The campus master plan includes a subsequent second phase which will provide a fully equipped Performing Arts Theatre for approximately 600 guests with a lobby, ticket booth and extensive spaces backstage to accommodate the production of first-class music and theatre performances. Estimated costs for the Performing Arts Theatre are approximately $11 million. 

The leadership of Woodlands Christian has consistently and conservatively deferred commencement of any capital campaign until any related debt from the last campaign has been fully repaid from outstanding pledges. Fortunately, the last construction loan which was for the Micah Academic Center was fully repaid in June 2020.  Given the urgency to support the growth of fine arts, we are immediately starting our next capital campaign for a Fine Arts Educational Building and outdoor amphitheater.
