Logos Academy is a private, Christ-Centered, school that has been providing education to students in York, Pennsylvania since 1998. In mid-2009, the City of York approved plans for a new school for Logos allowing consolidation of the school’s existing operations, which had been located within two local churches in Downtown York. The site chosen by Logos Academy for their new home was the former location of the First Capital Fibers recycling facility. The former recycling facility, with the exception of a 732 s.f.± historic “tower” portion of the building, was razed as a part of the project.
Additional site improvements included a two-story school, small parking lot at the southeast corner of W. King St. and S. Newberry St., a larger parking lot on the east side of the school, as well as service facilities on the south side of the building. A new public street, known as Dublin St., was constructed through the project site, from W. Princess St. to W. King St. Additional improvements associated with the project, are located on lands currently owned by the Redevelopment Authority of the City of York (RDA). These improvements included the installation of perpendicular parking spaces off of Dublin St., sidewalks, a playground and garden area, a shared private drive for access to the rears of existing adjacent residences, and stormwater management facilities.
