Upgrades to Providence Christian Academy is Investment in Lilburn CID

The "Providence Tomorrow" campaign is improving technology, as well as arts and athletics programs.

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.”

There is a lot of forward thinking in Lilburn right now...it started with the formation of the LCP, and then the CID. The tireless efforts of CID Director,Gerald McDowell, and the cooperation and willing attitude of the City, it's officials,and it's Manager Bill Jonsea, are getting the job done. This isn't a speed boat, rather a ship, but Lilburn is making the turn. The proof is all around.

Headmaster Jim Vaught was part of the Study Team of Lilburn leaders who formed the Lilburn Community Partnership which subsequently formed the Lilburn Community Improvement District. Mr. Vaught continues his volunteer efforts for improving our community through serving on the Board of Directors for the CID and offering meeting space for monthly and community meetings. A big thank you to Providence Christian Academy for being a great partner in fostering a supportive climate for significant redevelopment to happen in our Lilburn community. Success in their "Providence Tomorrow" campaign will benefit us all. I encourage everyone to help in any way possible.
