New Christian School Opening in Elmira in a Week

- ELMIRA, N.Y (18 NEWS) – In one week, a new Christian school will officially open in Elmira's Riverside United Methodist Church.

The Master's Vineyard Mission Academy of the Twin Tiers will teach students in kindergarten through twelfth grade.

Principal and founder of the school, Christina Webber, said 16 students from Niagara Falls, Pennsylvania, and Elmira, are currently registered at the school.

Webber is busy preparing for the first day of classes.

"We are working basically around the clock. We just moved a whole bunch of school items in. We still have some things to prepare in the building. We're happy if anyone wants to come paint and help us. There definitely is opportunity,” said Webber.

Webber said she thinks the school will revitalize the community since it will also serve as an education center for adults by offering depression recovery and cooking classes.

Webber said at 5 p.m on Sunday, there will be an open house at the school for anyone who wants to get a glance at the building.

Webber added that anyone who’d like to help prepare the school can call her at (607) 398-0202.
