School Expansion Plan


The school building expansion for ISJ is as easy as 1-2-3. This summer, St. James Lutheran Church will contract with a construction company to add bathrooms, storage space, and classroom to the school. St. James is contributing $100,000 from its building fund and ISJ Academy is raising funds to pay for the remaining costs. Below is a summary of the project.

  1. Staff Bathroom – Currently there is no staff bathroom in the school building. Having a bathroom for single occupancy is a necessity in today’s changing environment.
  2. Storage Room – Adequate storage space is absent at the school. There is no storage on the main floor of the school. The lack of space on the main floor means supplies are stored in cabinets throughout the building producing clutter and an unattractive space. In addition, ISJ uses three closets and utilizes a fourth area in the Church’s basement, which takes away space from St. James.
  3. Additional Classroom – ISJ’s mission is to develop Christ-centered students and families for life and eternity. An additional classroom for our Early Childhood program provides ISJ the ability to attract more families to our school and to our Church.
