Cape Girardeau School District purchases former Red Star Baptist Church

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – The Cape Girardeau School District purchased the former Red Star Baptist Church building.

It’s located at 1301 North Main Street in Cape Girardeau and will be the new home of Cape Central Academy.

The district’s early childhood center will move into the current Central Academy space leaving more room for both programs.

The church building opened in 1955, followed by the activity center in 1973.

School officials need to meet with designers to plan the best use of space in the red star building, with hopes to start classes there by the beginning of the next school year.
