ATLANTA (AP) - Pace Academy in Atlanta is breaking ground on its new Upper School.

Officials at the private school say the 75,000-square-foot facility will replace the current Upper School, which was constructed in 1961.

The new Arthur M. Blank Family Upper School will nearly double the space of the current Upper School and will include The Woodruff Library, a gift of Jane Woodruff and Buck and Ann Woodruff.

It will also include a 1,500-square-foot Student Commons, a College Counseling suite, an Academic Resource Center, and state-of-the-art classrooms and science labs.

Construction is expected to begin May 25, and plans call for the building to open for the start of the 2014-15 year.
