WACO - Live Oak Classical School plans to deepen its roots this summer through a land purchase and renovation project that will bring all its students onto school-owned land along Fourth and Fifth streets downtown.

The school plans a two-phase expansion that will broaden its borders from 1.5 acres to 7.6 acres in a $7 million project, which will include moving its grammar school from First Baptist Church of Waco to the Waco Outreach Foundation’s Hoffman Hall building next door by the 2016-17 school year.

The school plans to close on the hall and surrounding land July 1, and renovations will begin this fall, said Alison Moffatt, Live Oak’s head of the school.

The school also plans to purchase First Baptist’s athletics building, surrounding land and storage building that sits across the street from the campus.

The second phase includes expanding Hoffman Hall with a covered pavilion outside and purchasing land for a six-man football field. But project dates depend on how quickly the school can raise funds, Moffatt said.
