Silverdale Baptist Academy is breaking ground this week on the $8.9 million Silverdale Center

A Baptist school in Chattanooga, Tenn., is scheduled to break ground this week on a facility for its athletic and performing arts programs.

Silverdale Baptist Academy, a private preK-12 school, says the Silverdale Center will have dedicated spaces for the school's performing arts and athletic departments and will house classrooms for sixth-graders.

Plans call for the center to have a 650-seat theater, a 1,000-seat gymnasium, a black box theater, a dance studio, rehearsal space, instructional studios, a weight room, five academic classrooms, gathering spaces, and offices.

The groundbreaking is scheduled for Thursday.

"It is time to offer our Fine Art students a place to call home," the school's website says. "It is time to offer our athletes a tournament-size gym."

Silverdale Baptist Academy was founded in 1999, and now has an enrollment of about 1,100 students.
