LEHI — A charter school has announced plans for an $8 million building project to house a space education center.

The Daily Herald in Provo reports Renaissance Academy executive director Marc Ursic unveiled the plans last week for the Farpoint Institute to be built in north Lehi.

Ursic says the center will be based on programs developed by Victor Williamson. Williamson is the former director of the Alpine School District's space center at Central Elementary and chairman of the Space EdVentures Foundation.

Ursic says the new addition to the campus will also house the middle school classes.
