Pilgrim Academy K-8 is receiving $7.9 million addition for a campus accommodating 750 to 900 students.

The school held its first community meeting in August to share preliminary design concepts and gather feedback.

Under the current proposal, the addition would include classroom spaces, a science lab, flexible learning areas and teacher work spaces. The new building project is expected to replace most of the temporary buildings now in use. The current design also includes plans to renovate the multi-purpose room to become a gymnasium that can accommodate a middle school athletics program.

The project is finalizing schematic development, and another community meeting will be held in early to mid-2016. The project is expected to go out for bid by the end of 2016, with a target completion in third quarter of 2017.
