Fort Worth Christian School plans chapel, performing arts center

The board of trustees at Fort Worth Christian School has unanimously approved funding for a $6.4 million, 700-seat chapel and auditorium and a performing arts center on the campus.

A $250,000 grant for the project from the Amon Carter Foundation will help kick off construction of the new facilities. A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for early fall with completion of the project slated for May 2015.

The private school is located on a 40-acre campus in North Richland Hills and houses grades Pre-K through 12 in 10 buildings.

The new chapel and auditorium will be available for use by each of the schools on campus. Plans call for a UIL-regulation stage for rehearsals and performances, a new band hall, and individual and ensemble practice rooms.

“We are so thankful to our many families and friends that are making this facility possible,” said Kelly Moore, FWC president. “It will have a tremendous impact on our students and enhance our ability to reach out to the North Tarrant County fine arts community,”

Founded in 1958, Fort Worth Christian School has in the past five years added 24,500 square feet of new construction, according to the school’s website. The school serves students from 30 different towns across North Texas, with the majority from Keller, North Richland Hills and Colleyville.
