PAA Prepares Campus for New School Building

Preparation for Portland Adventist Academy's new school building is a visible reality and the campus is changing is big ways.

While the projected groundbreaking ceremonies for phase one won't take place for another year, preparation for the construction is well under way.

Earlier this summer, student workers disassembled the tennis courts to make way for phase one of the new three-phase facility.

James Schaffer, '92 alumnus and owner of J & C Excavating, recently began digging a new sewer line. The current line is being expanded, separated and redirected to help accommodate not only the current facility, but the new school building as well as commercial buildings that will soon be built along the north side of the property.
