CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 28 - May 4, 2000 19 Plans progressing for new Delmarva Christian School By Rosanne Pack Members of the founding board of the Delmarva Christian High School think that they have an idea that will answer the prayers of many area families. The new school that they pro- pose will not be an overnight mir- acle, but by opening day in the fall of 2002, they expect to be well pleased with their work.. "This is something that has been on our hearts for several years," said Lynn Moore, secre- tary of the board of directors. "We've talked about it and talked about it, now we are in the process of building a state of the art Chris- tian School that will give Delmar- va families an alternative, a choice in education." When the first phase is com- plete, the school will serve grades nine through 12 in 120,000 sq. ft. of classrooms, common space, gymnasium, and offices. An open- ing enrollment of 300 students is expected; there will be the capaci- ty for more than 500. The high school will have gen- eral education courses, more aca- demic-oriented courses for those who are college bound, and there is the possibility of some classes in the trades. Music, art and drama are in- cluded in curriculum plans. Sports teams will be formed as the en- Above is Design Exchange's rendering of the new Dehnarva Christian School. rollment solidifies; long-term plans include full athletic fields and a swimming pool. The second phase of development will enable the school to accommodate up to 1,000 students. The projected cost of Delmarva Christian School is $13 million. Moore said the board of directors is collecting seed money now, and they are very encouraged with prospects for raising the needed funds. He said families are already calling for information and asking when they can apply for enroll- ment. The private, tuition-based school will be non-denomination- al, but according to Moore, it will be theology-based with adherence to Biblical teachings. He said admission will require a generic statement of faith, and at- tendance and involvement in a church. "We will welcome members of all Christian faiths," he said. "But we also want everyone to under- stand that we are not doing this as a statement against public educa- tion. We just want people to have choices." Moore said that many of those working on the Christian school project have close affiliations with Delaware public schools. They just feel that the time has come for a comprehensive Christ- ian high school in southern Delaware. The parent corporation of Del- marva Christian High School, Delmarva Education Center Inc., has a contract on 42 acres of land on Sussex 319, Sandhill Road, just south of Del. 9. The property is very close to the new CHEER Center on the eastern edge of Georgetown. Moore has high praise for the Town of Georgetown and for the support that municipal officials have shown. He said the property has been annexed within city lim- its and re-zoned as an education district. Moore also is grateful for the work of Design Exchange Inc. ar- chitectural firm. He said the Lewes office is re- Daily Lunch Soup & Sandwich Specials $3.95 Lunch & Dinner Daily from 10 a.m. Restaurant Employee Appreciation Sunday, Thursday 10 p.m. 'til Close. $1 Drafts -$2.25 Baby Shooters .$ Rail-S2 Domestic Bottles 15 Wilmington Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, DE 227-2888 sponsible for the plans for the" colonial-style brick building.
