Calvin Christian breaks ground on new building



The student body of Calvin Chris­tian School, family, and community members gathered to celebrate the ground breaking of The Heritage Center Chapel & Auditorium on Sept. 25.

“We are behind you, and we sup­port you,” Escondido Mayor Sam Abed said at the groundbreaking cer­emony.

The new building will provide the school with a space for choir and band concerts, plays and musicals as well as a dedicated space for week­ly chapel meetings for students in grades 6-12.

The project



was made a reality after the completion of a successful capital campaign last year. The entire cost of the $4.7 million building was raised from parents, grandparents, alumni and friends of Calvin Chris­tian School.

This summer, Calvin Christian School received an approved Con­ditional Use Permit for the building from the city of Escondido.

The high school gym and library have been serving as theaters and chapels for the students. The new space will include 600 padded seats with



a top of the line audio and visual sys­tem to ensure a quality facil­ity for the performing arts and weekly chapels at Calvin.

The Heritage Center Cha­pel & Auditorium will com­plete the physical master plan for Calvin Christian School.

Calvin Christian School is a preschool and kindergarten through 12th grade Christian school, located at 2000 N. Broadway, Escondido.

For more than 50 years Cal­vin has been partnering with Christian families and their churches to teach the whole child from a biblical world­view.
