CAK completes construction


Christian Academy of Knoxville’s construction project is finally complete.

After nearly nine months of laying concrete and erecting walls... the addition and renovation of the high school is finally finished.

“The new addition meets many, if not all, of our current needs as well as needs for the future growth of the high school,” Donald Snider, CAK High School principal, said. “Although the new classrooms are much needed, I am especially excited about the chemistry lab, computer lab, music room, commons extension and the new restrooms. These special rooms have been in great demand the last few years.”

Renovations include the expansion of the Commons, a remodel of the high school offices, the addition of more classrooms, a science lab, a computer lab and a music room. The project also includes the addition of 103 parking spaces in front of the school.

“This additional lot has allowed for the creation of much needed visitor and handicapped parking in front of the high school building,” Snider said.

Students and teachers have already begun moving into the new addition.

While some classes have already begun using their new classrooms, most of the new space will be fully furnished and used after spring break.

CAK High School currently has 422 students. The expansion will enable the high school to accommodate up to approximately 500 in the 2008-2009 school year.

The high school renovation and expansion is part of CAK’s overall growth strategy.

In fall of 2007 the middle school expansion was complete, taking the CAK Middle School’s capacity from the current 291 up to approximately 360 for the 2008-2009 school year.

For the first time in several years, CAK is in a position to accept new students at all grade levels.

The school is now accepting applications for new students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.

CAK recently dedicated the newly completed high school building in a special service held in the High School Commons. Students, parents and faculty came together to thank God for His faithfulness and consecrate the building to His service.

Superintendent Scott Sandie, Snider and CAK Board of Directors president Monty Scott spoke at the event.
