Geneva is excited to announce a major new development. The school has purchased a 10-acre parcel of land bordering the east side of its campus on Cascade Caverns Road. Paired with the previous acquisition of 19 acres which will provide access to I-10, this new land purchase allows the school to create a desirable and permanent footprint of 61 acres in Boerne. The greater Boerne area is forecasted to double in population in the next decade.
“When the land became available in August, the school commissioned an architectural committee to study prospective uses and opportunities that acquisition of the land would afford the school,” Geneva Board member Jim Guy Egbert said.
“We were encouraged that purchasing the property would enable the school to create an outer loop around the entire campus, which will improve traffic flow from I-10 to Cascade Caverns Road and will also reduce traffic through the heart of the campus. Our hope is that by creating a buffer on all four sides, we will make the campus more user-friendly, safe and seamless for students and families,” Egbert said.
Geneva currently has a K-12 student enrollment of 704 students. In the new year, the school will incorporate these recent land purchases into a strategic plan and begin a capital campaign to pay for the land, road infrastructure and to build out the campus with several key buildings for academics and fine arts with additions to its athletic facilities as well.
Head of School David Corbin said, “This purchase will permit us to build out the current campus in stages, while at the same time supporting current programming and building needs. While the character of the curriculum, devoted faculty and staff, and supportive community are primary to achieving its mission, we thought it prudent to secure a campus footprint to make realizing this vision more possible.”
“Our aspiration is to be an exemplar school within the classical Christian movement—a movement that is growing nationally and around the world. We want to be a place that draws the highest quality teaching, administrative and coaching talent and that employs that talent to glorify God by equipping students to lead as servants, scholars, athletes and artists,” Corbin said.
The school plans to host a series of town halls and information sessions with faculty, staff, students and families in January of 2022.
“We pray that this and other exciting developments will allow Geneva to serve with excellence in the years to come in the training of godly and gifted women and men,” Corbin said.
