The Bellefonte Area district is building the 750-student facility to replace the existing Bellefonte Elementary.

The Bellefonte Area (Pennsylvania) School District is preparing to begin construction of a replacement elementary school.

The 98,000-square-foot K-5 building will have space for up to 750 students. It will have flexible indoor and outdoor learning spaces, including a courtyard; a STEM lab; media center; musical area with instrument storage; multipurpose room with a stage; and an enhanced security system with cameras throughout the building.

The project’s total budget, including engineering, permits and project management expenses, is $55.3 million, according to the district.

The architect is KCBA Architects.
