For over 100 years now Pella Christian Grade School has been challenging students to develop their God-given gifts for a life of service in His kingdom. With a focus on teaching students about the world from a Biblical perspective, our mission is clear; proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ in all spheres of life and learning.
PELLA CHRISTIAN GRADE SCHOOL WAS FOUNDED IN 1912 AND
OPENED ITS DOORS IN JANUARY OF 1913 TO 26 STUDENTS.
TODAY, PELLA CHRISTIAN GRADE SCHOOL SERVES OVER 550
STUDENTS FROM 3 YEARS OLD THROUGH 8TH GRADE.
Carved on the cornerstone of Pella Christian Grade School is the inscription “Founded Upon God’s Word.” From its establishment in 1912, this conviction has inspired all who love Pella Christian Grade School and dedicate themselves to the Christian education of its students.
We’ve arrived at another exciting time in the life of Pella Christian Grade School. With student needs having outgrown our current structure, an onsite update and addition are underway and we need your help to see it through! This project entails property acquisition, as well as an onsite addition and remodel, with a total cost of $13,550,000. Through this we will be building a distinctively Christian learning environment — one that continues to uphold our mission of proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ in all spheres of life and learning.
Estimated cost: $100,000
Demolition of the house located at 301 Liberty Street and placement of leased, portable classrooms on that site.
Estimated cost: $1,200,000
Land acquisition and demolition of properties to the west, northwest and northeast of the present property for improved access and parking.
Estimated cost: $9,750,000
New construction of additional office space adjoining present offices and renovation of present entrance and offices. Update classrooms to house all preschool classrooms at 216 Liberty Street. New construction of 15 classrooms, cafeteria, kitchen and a second gymnasium, as well as renovation of rooms, media center and art room.
Estimated cost: $2,500,000
Update of existing structure to including remainder of the roof, security, surfaces, bathrooms and technology.
Groundbreaking for each phase of the building project will not commence until 42% of the final construction cost estimated for that phase is available, cash on hand. In addition to cash on hand, a minimum of 85% of the final construction cost estimate for that phase must be pledged. As we meet the fundraising goal for each phase of construction we will complete that portion of the project. The goal is to have the third phase complete by the start of the 2018-2019 school year.
Those who have come before us have helped create an amazing legacy. Now, it’s our job to continue building upon it from one generation to the next. The need is great. The time is now. Your support will help us reach new heights that further the intellectual, physical and spiritual development of every child that walks our hallways.
