Maine Central Institute is planning major renovations to an old building on campus.
JR Cianchette Hall has served as classroom space for math, science, and the arts since 1958.
The renovations will allow all of MCI’s arts programs to be housed in a single building.
Funding for the project comes from the Founders Campaign which has raised over six million dollars for the school.
“Other schools have been forced to cut. We have actually expanded our arts opportunities,” says headmaster Christopher Hopkins. “This facility will allow us to do even more of that, to provide more opportunities, more options for students in the arts.”
The money raised from the Founders Campaign will also be used for other projects at the school.
