Providence Academy in Plymouth will break ground July 18 for a new addition to the school, which will provide a connection from the existing building to the future performing arts center.

This addition includes office space for the middle school and development staff, a conference room, TV studio and a gathering space for middle school students. Construction is expected to be completed during the 2014-15 academic year.

Funding has come through the school’s Make Your Mark – Build the Pride capital campaign. Future projects of the campaign are a new performing arts center with 500-seat theater and redesigned outdoor athletic facilities.
