Two years of planning and fundraising led to an official start of construction for a new middle school classroom building at Lakeview Academy on Thursday. R.K. Whitehead, the former chairman of the school’s board, said the construction project is part of a strategic, long-range plan for the college preparatory school. The 17,000-square-foot, two-story building is expected to be ready for the school in June, and middle school classes will be moved there for the 2017-18 school year.
