Capstone Christian Academy to host Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on May 22


LAS VEGAS – Capstone Christian Academy, an independent, non-denominational Christian school, will host a groundbreaking ceremony at noon on May 22 at 985 E. Serene Ave to celebrate the opening of its campus. Capstone Christian, over two decades of planning, is the vision of Impact Sand & Gravel president Bill Wadley, who grew up in Henderson and planned for the school to provide top-notch college preparatory education in what he calls an underserved valley in southeast Las Vegas.

Capstone Christian is opening a 13,000 square foot building on East Serene Avenue, serving Kindergarten to Grade 2 students.

The school will eventually expand to its 25-acre main campus on East Cactus Avenue to serve kindergarten through grade 12 students. Construction of the East Cactus Avenue campus will begin in January. The design of the master plan, which foresees four brick buildings, will develop in several phases and will house administrative offices, classrooms, a cafeteria, a multipurpose space, a performing arts center, a sports hall and 20 acres of sports grounds.

“We have a team in place, top-notch real estate to build on and key partnerships with two of the best private schools in the country – institutions that have developed a model for delivering excellent, cutting-edge, values-driven education. of our founding fathers, ”said Capstone Christian Academy founder Bill Wadley.

The timetable proposed by Capstone Christian foresees the expansion of school to college in 2024 and to high school in 2028.

The Capstone Christian campus will stand on land donated in 2006 by Las Vegas developer Larry Canarelli and his wife Heidi. Wadley worked for Canarelli at American West Homes, becoming vice president of land development before purchasing his sand and gravel business in Canarelli.

Capstone Christian is poised to serve the children of the communities planned by the Masters of the Anthem, the Inspirada, Seven Hills and McDonald Highlands. The school will enrich a college preparatory program, inspired by the programs at Valley Christian School in San Jose, California, and Valor Christian High School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, with real-world experience using their leadership skills and their unique gifts to change the world.
