Sheriff Bob Mosier Cuts Ribbon at New Vint Hill School Building

[Warrenton, VA] – Fauquier County Sheriff Bob Mosier cut the ceremonial ribbon this weekend on a newly-renovated, 16,500-square-foot building hosting Covenant Christian Academy, an accredited K-12 independent school in Vint Hill. Over 200 supporters attended the ribbon-cutting and open house that included student-led historical tours, student-operated drone videography, and live music provided by four different teams of student musicians.

Also in attendance were Ike and Julie Broaddus, owners of the historic building that houses the school. Ike Broaddus stated, “Today we celebrate the opening of Covenant Christian Academy’s new location, in a building that had been slated for demolition a few years ago, as a milestone for this community. It is fitting that CCA has returned to Vint Hill, where they launched their journey eight years ago, joining over two dozen businesses that have reinvigorated the historic core of the former Army base.”

The school moved this year from their previous location in Warrenton. The facility includes 17 classrooms for grades K-12, a science lab, STEM lab, and a large multipurpose room.

Head of School Amber Sabia said, “Today is a very special day for our school, having grown from 14 students in 2009 to over 200 students today. We are so thankful for God’s provision of this beautiful new home for our students and teachers.”

Mr. Broaddus added, “The school’s leaders, faculty, and staff have infused their vision, their love, and their boundless energy into transforming this space into a vibrant center for learning.  It is evident from the smiles on the faces of these kids that they are succeeding in every measure.”

The school plans to expand for the 2018-2019 school year into an additional 6,000 square feet of currently unfinished space adjacent to the school. The building neighbors Covert Cafe, the Cold War Museum, and Old Bust Head.
