EDUCATION PROJECTS

The Learning Experience – (8/2016) The Learning Experience is under construction at Loop 494 and Northpark Drive, in Village of Northpark – South. They are a leading provider of early education services and one of the nation’s fastest growing academies for children 6 wks. to 5 yrs.

Light of the World Christian Fellowship –  (8/2016) Light of the World Christian Fellowship celebrated the opening of their new Worship Center with an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony with the Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2016.

The Covenant Preparatory School – (7/2016) Changed their name from the Northeast Christian Academy and broke ground on one of their first new facilities, a new gymnasium to go with the current 120,000 square feet of academic space. Building of new facilities began summer 2016 and will continue into early fall. The new campus features 34 acres just south of Kingwood Park High School on Glade Valley Drive, designed to look similar to a college campus. The new gymnasium will feature two competition courts, which can be divided into four courts for tournament purposes, multiple locker rooms and a three-lane track on the second story and weight room among other amenities. The new facility will alleviate a lack of practice space for all of the basketball and volleyball teams. The school is growing, the high school will add in numbers when the current middle school classes reach that level. When the new campus opens and numbers increase, additional sports may come along with it. A big reason for the new campus is to appeal to families who are currently seeking the college prep atmosphere inside the loop and will seek to attract LHA families who travel inside the loop daily for top private schools so they don’t have to leave the area.

Including Kids – (6/2016) A nonprofit organization that works with kids and young adults with autism and related developmental delays, will break ground soon on a new state-of-the-art 2.5 acre treatment center on 7/17/16.

San Jacinto College – Generation Park – (1/2016) Has closed on 57 acres at Generation Park, just across Lockwood Road from the 173-acre FMC Technologies Corporate Headquarters currently under construction.
