A Message from Our Director

Union Colony Community Members,

We’re excited; the Preparatory School will be in a new building next school year! There will be no basement classrooms and all classrooms will have windows. Only the gym will remain of our existing structure. We will demolish everything else, the parking area will be enlarged and more efficient, and a new field/play area next to 20th Street will be fenced.

The high school portion of the existing facility was constructed in 1964 as an American Legion building. Union Colony has made great use of the building since 1997, but age has taken its toll. Addressing the HVAC and roofing issues alone would tally more than one million dollars. It just didn’t feel right to invest that kind of money into 1964, so we began looking into alternatives.

We considered demolishing just the 1964 portion, but the newer middle school portion has some facility issues that need addressed as well. Additionally, integrating a new building with an existing building has its own challenges and expenses. In the end, after careful consideration of the alternatives, we decided the most prudent course of action was to construct a new building on the grass area east of the gym. This will allow us to begin construction March 1, 2018, so that we will be able to complete construction for the 2018/2019 school year.

We selected Roche Constructors, Inc. for the work. Roche is a local contractor with expertise in building schools. Additionally, Roche has generously agreed to carry the cost while we work out the financing. Otherwise, we would not be able to complete this project until the 2019/2020 school year.

We plan to have a public meeting for Q&A before the new year.

Sincerely,

Jim Anderson
