School is out for the summer, but construction is still going on to ensure that the Sussex Academy Charter School’s new building will be ready for the start of school this fall.
Construction crews are working to complete the 9th-grade wing of Sussex Academy, which is now in the building that was formerly occupied by Delmarva Christian High School. On Monday, Senator Tom Carper joined officials from USDA Rural Development for a tour of the building to see the progress of the construction. The project is being paid for through a 40-year, $6.25 million loan through Rural Development’s Community Facilities Program.
Earlier this month, the switch in buildings between Sussex Academy and Delmarva Christian was made official. The switch allows Sussex Academy to become a high school, adding grades 9 through 12, which is expected to increase enrollment by 750 students.
