Ozaukee Christian School Hosts Open House

While the media likes to tease the location for the former occupants, it will be interesting to see if this works. It’s kind of in the middle of nowhere.

TOWN OF TRENTON — An area Christian school that’s moving into a new location just outside West Bend is planning an open house for prospective students and their parents next week.

The Ozaukee Christian School is planning the event for 6:30 p.m. Aug. 6 at Calvary Church, 1110 E. Decorah Road. Principal Kris Austin said the open house is aimed at familiarizing potential families with the nondenominational school’s programs and financial aid offerings.

The school is poised to launch its first academic year inside its new building: a converted strip mall — and onetime gentleman’s club — along Highway 33 between West Bend and Newburg.

Austin called the renovation a “transformation andredemption” of a property that was once home to the Rhino Gentlemen’s Club. She said Tuesday

the school had closed on a sale of the property just last week.

Portions of the 22,000square-foot building should be renovated in time for the start of classes Sept. 16, she said. The rest of the building should be prepped in time for a complete campus opening next year.
