The Central Virginia Christian School (CVCS) in Dillwyn recently broke ground on the site of a new facility, sited adjacent to its school building.

The building, which will be close to 5,000 square feet, will house a large recreation area, locker rooms and two additional classrooms, according to CVCS Administrator Dr. Cherie Brickhill. Brickhill said Piney Ridge Construction of Appomattox was hired as the contractor.

The facility is expected to be completed in mid-April.

The CVCS Board of Directors began considering the building several years ago; Piney Ridge was hired to build it this past summer, according to Brickhill.

Brickhill explained the two classrooms in the building will likely be used for physical education/health classes, middle school electives or elementary resource classes. The classrooms will be located on the second floor of the facility, above the locker rooms.

“We are very excited to be able to offer some additional space for our students,” Brickhill said. “In particular, this new facility will allow us to broaden the opportunities we offer our students both during the school day and in terms of extracurricular activities.”
