Mount Paran Christian School in Kennesaw is moving forward with a plan to expand its high school.

The school's Imagine Tomorrow campaign has raised the money needed for its $11 million Murray Innovation Center. A total of $12 million was raised, which included a $1 million building maintenance endowment, Mount Paran said in a press release.

Mount Paran said 430 high school students attend class in Dozier Hall, which was built to accommodate 250 students

A groundbreaking is planned for spring 2020 for the center, which will feature additional STEAM classrooms, art and graphic design studios, maker’s space with materials, a robotics construction and fabrication lab and engineering and digital theater space.

Doors to the Murray Innovation Center are expected to open in the 2021-22 academic year, the school said.

Imagine Tomorrow campaign co-chair David Bottoms said the community’s support has been “overwhelmingly encouraging.”

“The fact that the Murray Innovation Center will be built debt-free is a testament to the MPCS community’s generosity and its uncompromising commitment to ensure that MPCS students continue to be equipped with the resources to identify and make the most of their God-given talents,” he said.
