CAA New Building Project Reaches Halfway Mark

Construction of Columbia Adventist Academy's new classroom and administration building has passed the halfway mark of completion.

The building (being funded by the Next Century Campaign) has taken its shape, with roofing and windows placed. The speed of construction has been fast-paced, and the building has changed almost daily since July. The staff is told now that the outside shape is mostly complete, things will seem to slow down considerably. That is because the majority of changes from now on will take place inside and out of sight.

However, some important work is yet to be done. The building is large and impressive and the inside will soon also reflect what CAA stands for. The inside is where students will learn, socialize, and most importantly, worship.

The CAA Class of 2007 was the 100th class to graduate from the school. The new building will enable the school to carry on the mission and the vision of CAA as they have moved into their second century of educating young people in a positive, Christ-centered atmosphere. They are confident the next 100 years will bring many more lessons, blessings and memories, and they will turn out even more students who are excited to go out and change their world with the skills learned. The "Next Century" has begun.

Plan to join them on Friday, April 3, 2009, for Construction Completion Celebration Ceremonies. This will kick off Alumni Homecoming Weekend, honoring CAA's classes of 1929, 1934, 1939, 1949, 1959, 1969, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1999 and 2009.
