Seth M. Lasater • Class of 2000 • Chairman of the Board

Our board is proudly carrying on the tradition of ‘building in faith’ as so many of our predecessors did. We want to constantly improve our school and to glorify God; and this campaign does just that. I am proud of the Board’s vision in improving our facilities to ensure CA continues to provide first-class, Christ-centered education.


It’s an exciting time to be at CA!

We have record enrollment and buildings seem to be bursting at the seams. God has blessed us, and so many are seeing the value in a Christian education. With this growth we have outgrown the capacity in many of our buildings. Space is needed to open more doors for children.

The Building in Faith Campaign is special in that it touches so many areas of the Columbia and Spring Hill campuses over the next three years. While still maintaining the campus’s historic charm, we are looking to fix legacy building issues and bring current facilities up-to-date to provide the best environment for more children to learn and grow.
Expansions are underway at Vest Hall and the Spring Hill campus to add additional classrooms. We are also looking to renovate the Business Office and Academy Hall, add a multi-purpose room to the preschool, and rebuild the tennis courts. Through the Building in Faith Campaign, we will be able to make a greater impact on the lives of more children. Please join us by contributing to further Columbia Academy’s mission and bless students for years to come.


Spring Hill Expansion $1,800,000

Vest Hall Expansion $2,200,000

James A. Thomas, Ed.D. • President

We are building in faith in multiple ways – faith that God will send us His blessings as we strive to glorify Him, faith in our supporters to help us meet these needs, and building faith in our students each day as we share God’s word with them.
