“We have been looking forward to this day for years,” said Barbara Livesay, “and through God’s guiding hand and our constituent churches’ dedication and generosity, we will soon be able to provide the community with a complete Christian education here in Salem, Ore.”
The expansion represents the growth that Livingstone has experienced for the last few years, which has included adding a daily hot lunch program and a full-scale music department.
Since 1898, LAA has offered a Christ-centered education for students in kindergarten through grade 10. The school will add 11th grade starting in the fall of 2003, followed by 12th grade in 2004.
