FALLSINGTON, PA —The new Pennsbury High School project now has an architect.

At its recent meeting, the Pennsbury School Board chose among two architects to design the school district’s new high school, which is targeted for a winter 2029 opening.

School officials said that once the design is completed and approved, construction could begin next summer.

The school board chose between two finalists: KCBA Architects and Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates.

KCBA Architects of Hatfield Borough in Montgomery County was approved in a 6-2 vote with new school board member Donna Abrescia abstaining.

While the contract amount wasn’t revealed during the selection, it was revealed that KCBA paid $1.5 million less than the other finalist.

Board President Joanna Steere said both architects put together solid presentations. She noted that they were more familiar with projects and the costs in the Philadelphia region.

The vote authorized the school district to hire an architect and get the building going on a school that would open for the 2029 school year and may cost between $250 million and $277 million.

The district had received proposals from nine architects and then identified four finalists who “brought a unique vision and experience” to the construction of a new high school.
