Sebastian Charter Junior High School announced the start of the construction on its new school and administration building.
This project will replace the deteriorating modular structures that have been home to SCJH for the past 12 years.
The new school buildings, totaling 20,000 square feet, were designed and are being constructed by Banov Construction, of Vero Beach. The new campus will offer working science labs, a media center, and a multi-purpose building.
Sebastian Charter Junior High is committed to educating the children of Indian River County at a high level, and has received an "A" rating for the past seven years. SCJH is also recognized as a high performing charter school by the Florida Department of Education.
The new school buildings will not only provide new technology, but also a renewed atmosphere to inspire teaching and learning and promote the long term success of SCJH.
In order to bring the dream of new school buildings into a reality, Sebastian Charter Junior High has received the support of many community members and organizations.
The Indian River Impact 100 awarded SCJH a grant to equip the science labs, clinic, media center, and Exceptional Student Education classroom.
Also, the Sebastian Clambake Foundation has awarded SCJH a grant to build a new multi-functional courtyard as part of the new campus.
The completion of the school and administration building is projected to occur in the spring of 2013 and the multi-purpose building, to follow with completion in the summer of 2013.
