Prestonwood Christian Academy North continues to grow, so does the need for additional space. Long-time families will remember what it was like in Plano during the early years as school was hosted in every nook and cranny of Prestonwood Baptist Church and in portable buildings. The same is now true at PCA North.
The most recent expansion comes as part of the Prestonwood North Campus PROCLAIM initiative, which includes five new classrooms, enlarging two existing classrooms and additional school office space. These five new classrooms will meet the needs of the growing Lower School and office space will accommodate Dr. Clarence Williams, PCA Deputy Superintendent and PCA North Head of School, and Mrs. Becky Knight, new Lower School Assistant Principal. As a ministry of Prestonwood, PCA North is benefitting from the significant financial investment being made in this space.
In addition to the interior renovation, PCA will add a new 9,856 square foot portable building behind the current Middle School portable building. This new building will be a mixed-use for Fine Arts and Athletics. The new art studio will include the first kiln at the North Campus to enhance the art program. A multipurpose room will provide a new venue for theater, band, and choir. The current locker room and athletics offices will move to the new portable building with restrooms, showers, and a trainers’ room. The portable building was delivered in early June and construction will be completed in time for school this fall.
With the athletic offices and locker rooms moving to the new portable building, the current portable will be completely renovated to accommodate four new classrooms. These classrooms will facilitate future growth of both school and church. The library is moving to a new home inside the Lower School in the former Community Room. The renovations began in May and will be completed in August.
In the midst of great growth, we are reminded of the words of Psalm 127:1 that “Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.” To that end, we anticipate the great things God will do at the North Campus.
