New Performing Arts and Athletics Building at the Roseville Campus

Roseville, CA (MPG) - Officials from John Adams Academy charter school celebrated recently with a groundbreaking ceremony for their new performing arts and athletics building, to be known as the “Jefferson Building”.   John Adams Academy, a free charter public school serving grades TK through 12, and located in Roseville, names each of their buildings to honor the Founding Fathers.    Thomas Jefferson was selected as the founding father to honor as he was known for being a renaissance man with multiple interests and talents.  The Jefferson Building joins a campus with buildings honoring John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, James Madison, and George Washington. 

“When completed the Jefferson Building will be approximately 11,600 square feet,” said Executive Director Joseph Benson, “It will have a gym floor, stage, two multi-purpose classrooms, and office space.”

“We are extremely excited about this enhancement to our Roseville campus.” said Dr. Dean Forman, Founder and Board President. “The Jefferson Building is designed to support our classical education model by providing a home for our performing arts and athletics programs.”

The project is being delivered by DesCor Builders and is expected to be completed in time for the 2018-19 school year.
