SVA is growing!
Enrollment has steadily increased over the past several years, nearing 500 students in the fall of 2021 (and 530 in the fall of 2023). With the existing facility at maximum capacity, SVA made the decision to expand.
What does this mean?
SVA added approximately 15,000 square feet of new space on the southwest end of the existing building. This new construction includes six new classrooms that open onto a large atrium with plenty of space for studying, small groups, and other gatherings. There is an activity room with ping-pong tables as well as a beautiful patio space.

What was the timeline?
Construction began September 2021 and was completed Summer 2022.
How much did it cost?
The building cost approximately $6.8 million. Through generous donations we have less than $1 million left to raise. There are still several prominent naming opportunities available.
