The Menomonee Falls Plan Commission on Tuesday will consider a proposal from Aquinas Academy to construct a new, free standing building to accommodate its growing study body.
Aquinas Academy, W15935 Good Hope Road, teaches students in kindergarten through eighth grade. The proposed 29,785-square-foot facility would be located approximately 50 feet to the south of the existing 14,760 square-foot building, according to village documents. The school is hoping the Plan Commission and Village Board will grant an amendment to its conditional use permit to allow for the expansion.
The building would be used as a middle school and will provide additional classrooms, a gymnasium and an oratory. It would be designed with rooms allocated to science, art, music and a library, as well as general classroom space.
The new facility is designed so it can accommodate two additional wings in the future that would total another 15,000 square feet and provide another 10 classrooms, according to documents.
The Plan Commission will send their recommendation to the Village Board, which will make the final decision.
