"The children are excited about coming to school. They enjoy being in the new building," said Administrator Dennis Hoffman.
Classes for the schools' more than 280 students started on Jan. 10.
"We're excited to see the kid's faces," he said.
Located at 530 N. Locust St. for around 20 years, the Christian-based private school moved to a 35-acre site on Cearfoss Pike this year to accommodate increasing enrollment.
The school paid $225,000 for the property and $2 million for the new construction, he said.
The new 47,000-square-foot building has 21 classrooms, a gym, a science room, computer lab and rooms for art, music and weight lifting, said Hoffman.
