On Wednesday, October 17, 2018, the Rivermont Collegiate Board of Trustees approved plans to move forward with construction of the STEAM center. Finances have been arranged, but fundraising will continue so we can furnish the classrooms with the latest equipment and technology. A groundbreaking ceremony will be held on November 5th, 2018, from 2:30-3:30.
Our goal was to begin construction this fall and have the building ready for use next August. We are on track to meet that goal! The exterior was redesigned with a more traditional feel, so it complements the beautiful campus, and inside there is still room to grow. It features offices, a band room, makerspace, technology suite, two state-of-the-art science labs, and several other classrooms, as well as dorm rooms and faculty apartments.
Rivermont Collegiate is currently ranked the number one college-preparatory school in Iowa and the number one STEAM school – but we need this building if we are to reach the heights I know we’re capable of reaching.
Funding and building the STEAM center is the final phase of the school’s two-year, “From Rivermont’s Doors, The World!” campaign. Many people have worked tirelessly to make this a reality. We are thankful to everyone for believing in the vision for the future of our school and its students, and who contributed to help make it happen.
