Building His Masterpiece

The great commission of all Christians is to "go and make disciples of all nations" (Matt 28:16). This campaign is about better preparing our students and families to fulfill that commission. To prepare our students to be ‘life-ready' and to experience all that our Heavenly Father has to offer those who know him!
- Rich Fulford, Head of School

About the Campaign

In November 2020, CAK embarked on the Building His Masterpiece capital campaign based upon Ephesians 2:10. Our initial goal of $6.84 million was met in December of 2021. Praise the Lord! Due to God’s blessings of meeting our initial goal so quickly, CAK has decided to adjust the goal by 10%, to $7.5 million, to account for the rise in inflation and allow for upgrades to lighting, sound, and more in the new Christian Life Center. 

The money will be allocated toward the advancement of technology for academic and infrastructure, to establish an endowment for the purpose of making Christian education sustainable and affordable, and to build a Christian Life Center dedicated to the spiritual growth of our students as well as to enhance our ability to develop their creative talents to honor Christ in worship and artistic performance. It's an exciting time to be a Warrior!

Christian Life Center (CLC)

The Christian Life Center (CLC) will provide a place for weekly chapel services, collaborative meetings, and spiritual nurturing. The CLC will also serve as a place where students can discover and display their God-given talents. Its multi-use functionality will provide an auditorium for our students to showcase their performing and visual arts talents for the community.

Technology Advancements

Our learning space must be equipped with advanced technology that our students will need to be successful in the 21st century and beyond. We are committed to providing our students with tools that maximize academic productivity. It is essential that our teachers and students are connected with ever changing technological advancements, such as interactive smart boards, communication systems, and connectivity solutions.

Endowment Fund

The CAK endowment fund builds on the vision of providing an affordable college preparatory education with a Christian worldview to the broadest range of Christian families in East Tennessee. CAK's endowment will help create a reliable and ongoing source of income for the school in perpetuity. A robust endowment will provide CAK with greater financial flexibility and a self-sustaining income stream that will grow over time.

Fund for Excellence

The Fund for Excellence is a source of revenue that will be used at the discretion of the head of school to meet needs as they arise during the campaign and to act on new opportunities as they emerge, including initiatives for students, administration, faculty, and overall financial stability.
