SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Sioux Falls is getting a new school.

Sioux Falls Lutheran School is preparing to build a preschool through eighth-grade facility on 30 acres of land recently donated by Sanford Health. Sanford also provided a $5 million match donation.

Sioux Falls Lutheran first announced the push for a new building more than a year ago, citing a lack of space in its current facility. School administrator Tia Esser says the goal is to start construction later this year.

The Argus Leader reports the site also will house child care, softball and soccer fields, a tennis court and a track. There's enough room left for a high school, though that's not currently in the works.
