Master Campus Plan
*Buildings in orange shown above represent future growth of Woodlands Christian campus.
Woodlands Christian’s growing enrollment is consistent with the long-term goal of steadily expanding our ministry to serve approximately 950 students, representing four classes per grade, a goal that we hope to reach within the next 10 years. The administration believes that this target enrollment will preserve the intimate size that is vital to a caring educational community where students and faculty know each other well, while at the same time providing the economies of scale needed to optimize the school’s academic and extracurricular programs at a reasonable cost. As the school’s enrollment increases, we will be able to further increase the breadth of our academic course offerings and the size and caliber of our athletic and fine arts programs.
While Woodlands Christian’s leadership and Governance Board are proud of the school’s success thus far and enthusiastic about our continued growth, we are also cognizant that growth presents new challenges. In particular, our expanding student body has placed ever-greater pressure on our academic facilities, which are already stretched to the limit. Furthermore, unless we construct additional classroom space quickly, we will be forced to limit our enrollment to its present level and turn away many excellent students seeking admission.
Campaigns are large-scale, special fundraising initiatives for specific and target projects. Campaigns provide the additional financial resources necessary for major enhancements to Woodlands Christian, and are therefore frequently trans-formative in nature. Each campaign serves to sustain and improve The Woodlands Christian Academy and the experience it provides for its students.
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. The construction loan for our most recently completed capital improvement project, the Joshua Academic Center, was fully repaid in December 2015. Given the urgency to expand our capacity and eliminate more of the aging modular buildings that have been utilized on our campus for the past 19 years, we have begun the capital campaign for a state-of-the-art high school building.
