ATLANTA (AP) — An Atlanta private school is opening a major addition to its campus.

Pace Academy on Monday officially opens the Arthur M. Blank Family Upper School on its campus on West Paces Ferry Road.

School officials say the 75,000-square-foot facility nearly doubles the space of the previous upper school facility. They say it will also add a college counseling suite, an academic resource center with private tutoring rooms and science labs.

A two-year fundraising campaign raised more than $35 million through 1,300 gifts from individual donors, including the lead gift from Arthur Blank, chairman of The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation.
