CWC set to expand its Waupun campus

March 29, 2019

WAUPUN – Central Wisconsin Christian School will break ground Monday on a $3.5 million addition to its campus.

Three new classrooms will be added to the middle school wing on the northeast corner of the building; a section that formed the original high school campus in 1957.

Existing classrooms for grades six to eight will be renovated and enlarged and a learning commons will be created.

The elementary wing, which was built in 2010 when CWC moved to a single preK – 12 campus, will see the addition of two classrooms.

CWC Administrator Mark Buteyn said the school has seen an increase in enrollment since the move to one campus almost a decade ago.

The project also will see the construction of a new bus garage, and renovations of parking, playground and practice field spaces.

Another key component of the project is the creation of an AgProTech program, which will enhance agricultural, technical and professional concentrations and expand an internship program that puts students into area businesses.

Fundraising for the project reached the 70 percent mark after a recent 21-day challenge matched a $250,000 gift with more than $400,000 in donations.

“We continue to be overwhelmed by the dedicated financial support of the CWC constituency,” said Director of Advancement Gregg Zonnefeld. “While we were optimistic that we would be in position to do build some of the needed classroom space, to see our supporters come together and allow us to build the entire project right away is a testimony of God’s faithfulness.”

Construction will begin next week, following the groundbreaking ceremony, which is set for Monday at 6:30 p.m. Completion and occupancy is targeted for the start of the 2019-20 school year.
