The Building Unity Project began as an idea in the late 1990’s, turned into a fundraiser, that has now been completed thanks to financial support from our entire Unity Christian community.
The entire project consists of 110 acres that is the current Unity campus & athletic complex which includes soccer fields, tennis courts, baseball & softball diamonds, a cross country course, and Unity Field. The Unity school building is 147,000 square feet which includes 30,000 square foot for a multipurpose gymnasium that includes a track. There are specialty classrooms for band & orchestra, choir, art, industrial arts, health & PE, consumer sciences, and educational support.
$6.1 Million- Phase I of the Building Unity Project was the purchase of land on 48th Avenue that would become the new campus of Unity Christian. Included in phase I was the construction of a new athletic complex and infrastructure preparation for the new school building. Phase I was completed in 2003.
$10.5 Million- Phase II of the Building Unity Project was the kick-off of the fundraising campaign to start raising the full amount needed for the construction of the new school building, a cost of $23.1 million. Included in phase II was the addition of extra parking at the campus which now serves as the schools main parking lot. The extra lot was completed in 2007.
$12.6 Million- Phase III of the Building Unity Project was the start of the final push to raise the remaining amount for the cost to build the new school. Part of phase III took place in 2012 when Unity purchased an additional 30 acres to the south of the land it had owned, for future expansion. Phase 3 saw the full construction of the new Unity building on the 48th Avenue campus. The project started with a community groundbreaking in May 2014. The project was completed in August of 2015 when Unity students walked into classes for the first time in the new school for the 2015-16 year.
