Planned enhancements benefiting the students of Providence Christian Academy signify a substantial investment in the Lilburn Community Improvement District.
The “Providence Tomorrow” campaign seeks to further the school’s objective to better serve its students and their families with improved technology, as well as new facilities, fine arts programs and athletics.
In addition to purchasing student iPads to augment the learning experience, the school’s $4.5 million capital effort supports the development of an 11-acre sports complex to include a multipurpose field and track facilities. Providence Christian Academy is also now able to offer its first-ever football program.
Providence Headmaster Jim Vaught said the school has a history of providing new uses for underutilized properties, including the conversion of former retail buildings for educational purposes.
“In our 20-year history, we’ve used space that was never fully developed and put it to good use for the children of Lilburn and surrounding areas,” Vaught said. “We hope that we provide a stabilizing presence in our city and will continue to do so for many years to come.”
CID Executive Director Gerald McDowell said Providence Christian Academy is one of Lilburn’s unique private education amenities. The school's investment efforts, along with world-class Gwinnett County Public Schools, will gain the attention of businesses and individuals seeking a strong community.
“It is very positive to see Providence’s substantial commitment to Lilburn,” McDowell said. “Educational facilities are a chief consideration for families and businesses seeking new surroundings. We are happy to say that Lilburn has high-quality resources to meet their needs.”
