Greenville private K-12 school Christ Church Episcopal School will grow by 22 acres (~30%) as part of its newly-released Campus Master Plan.

“This is about enhancing the program and quality of life on campus for faculty, staff, the student body and even visitors,” says Cary Weekes, CCES Board of Trustees, Immediate Past Chair.

The $110 million plan, which has been in the works since as early as September 2017, hopes to transform the campus-feel “into that of a small college” by adding new facilities to 245 Cavalier Dr., improving the traffic flow and pedestrian accessibility, and by purchasing land to update and expand its campus.
