A small private school in West Knoxville celebrated its expansion on Monday.
Paideia Academy cut the ribbon on a new building that houses two new classrooms.
The school offers a classically-based Christian education with a unique approach. Students meet at the school on three days a week, and receive at-home instruction on the other two.
The new classrooms will allow the school to continue its track of adding one new grade each year and to have a graduating class in 2015.
"This is the final step to getting to a graduating, k-12 program. We do look forward to building a gymnasium here, we've got other expansions that are taking place. But our school, we're a small school in the area, we're not the largest private, Christian school in the area, but we're very unique in the program," said James Cowart, Headmaster at Paideia Academy
The school currently has 131 students. Administrators eventually hope to add a gym, performing arts center and a larger science lab to the property.
The school is currently raising funds to build a handicap- accessible playground.
