Greenbrier Community School begins first phase of old Bolling School renovations

LEWISBURG, WV (WOAY) – The Greenbrier Community School, a private school in Lewisburg, has been renting space in the Rhema Christian Center, but it will soon have its own building as renovations have begun on the old Bolling School.

They broke ground on Wednesday to begin phase one of the project to bring new life to the old school that has been vacant for years.

The newly-renovated school will keep the look but will expand out as construction committee member Paul Grist calls this a win-win for a school that needed its own space and a community landmark in use again.

“Finding a home here, everything just really comes together because we’re in the community. It’s a very walkable area, close to town. And it brings some light on a place that’s struggled for a while,” he said.

In partnership with Bimbo Coles, the plan is for the school is to also serve as a community center after hours.

Classes are expected to begin there in the fall.
