Sanborn Christian School Eyes Expansion

Date posted - January 8, 2016

Sanborn ChristianSanborn, Iowa — A private grade school in this area has plans to break ground in the spring on a $3-million dollar expansion and renovation project.

Anthony Minderhoud is Principal of Sanborn Christian School, and he talks about the project.

He says that, in addition to the expansion, the plans include a renovation project in the current building.

Minderhoud says the school currently has an enrollment of 96 students, and their projection is that in five years, enrollment will top 100.  He says that they’re currently using all of the available space they have now.

He says the plan is for construction to begin this spring.

Unlike public schools, Sanborn Christian can’t pay for their project with tax dollars.  Minderhoud says they’ve been contacting supporters of Sanborn Christian School for pledges toward the construction, and in the past year, have raised approximately $1.6 million toward the $3 million dollar price tag.

Sanborn Christian School’s current school building was built in 1958, and remodeled in the 1980’s, according to Minderhoud.
