Rocky Knoll Breaks Ground on New School

Story by Evan Knott

The Rocky Knoll School, located in Martinsburg, W.Va., recently held a groundbreaking ceremony to commemorate plans to construct a new state-of-the-art facility. Attendees included Martinsburg Mayor Kevin Knowles and representatives from the Chesapeake Conference, Rocky Knoll and the Martinsburg church.

The new facility will sit on a 12.37-acre property adjoining the Martinsburg church. The building will encompass more than 26,000 square feet and feature a large gymnasium, commercial kitchen, two fully equipped playgrounds and modern classrooms.

“We are here today because of the sacrifices others have made and because of the vision others have had of the value of Adventist education,” said Jerry Lutz, conference president, during the ceremony.

Construction documents for the new building are currently being finalized. School officials say they hope to begin full-scale construction in the spring of 2023 after selling the school’s existing facility.
