Falmouth Academy Media Director Patricia Pronovost said the school broke ground on the new Meeting Hall, an amphiteater-style space that will be used for the daily all-school meetings that are a big part of the Falmouth Academy experience.
The 3,600-square-foot Meeting Hall will have capacity for 250 seats and an attached teaching kitchen.
Pronovost says the space will be available to community groups.
Next up at the school is a 300-seat state of the art performing arts center.
Construction will begin after the meeting room is complete in spring 2015.
Pronovost said, the school has raised about 70 percent of the 5.7 million dollars necessary for the projects.
