WILMINGTON | The new Coastal Christian High School is taking shape.
The metal framework for the interdenominational Christian high school’s new building is set to go up Wednesday. Concrete footings were poured earlier in March, and a concrete slab is set to go down in early April, said Cindy Auten, the school’s development director.
With 26,000 square feet, it will have space for 340 students in 15 classrooms, two science labs, a library and a gym. Students will move to the new building by the 2012 holiday season.
Coastal Christian has been renting Temple Baptist Church’s six-classroom activity center since the high school opened with 42 students in 2006. About 190 students attended the school this year, and administrators expect about 240 students to enroll for next year.
