The Frankfort Christian Academy has officially purchased the old Fruit of the Loom site, and is set to consolidate its facilities in the 108,000-square foot building no later than December.
Robert Roach, headmaster of the school, told The State Journal Tuesday the former factory located on U.S. 421 was purchased three weeks ago by the private schools board for $1.4 million. The facilities, which encompass 20 acres, will house the school and its additional warehouse space will be rented out to generate revenue.
Currently, the academy is operated out of Crestwood Baptist Church and Capital City Christian Church.
Its the hand of God and providence, said Roach. It has provided us with things we never imagined we would get.
Roach said students could be filing into the new school as early as August or by fall break in October. The new facilities will be open no later than Christmas, Roach said.
