Roxboro Community School is building a new auditorium and gymnasium. With the help of Convergent Nonprofit Solutions, we launched a capital campaign to Raise the Roof on a Dog House, or gym, for our student athletes, and an auditorium for our theater, band and dance classes. As of March 14, 2016, just over $1.5 million has been pledged by Person County individuals and businesses.
This final phase of construction will also provide Personians a new venue for family and community events.
Once done, this fifth phase of renovation on the historic Roxboro Cotton Mill will complete the work that began in 2005 to provide middle and high school students in Person and surrounding counties a small, safe, inviting and nurturing atmosphere in which to learn and grow into responsible, productive citizens.

“The City of Roxboro believes that Raise the Roof is one of the next right steps towards intelligent growth for the Roxboro area. It fits our vision of being a community that is safe, healthy, scenic, quaint, vibrant, family-oriented and well-educated. At the same time, this project helps fulfill our mission of creating an inviting environment with opportunities that will add value to the community of Roxboro. As preferred educational services are provided, it will boost our economy by creating new jobs and generating significant new tourism and capital investment in Roxboro. Raise the Roof is a well-crafted plan that will benefit every resident of our community at some point in time.”
“Raise the Roof is designed to fulfill Roxboro Community School’s vision. RCS will provide an environment that directs students to focus on relevant and rigorous learning and community service that is expected to continue after high school. A gymnasium, auditorium and multi-purpose rooms are critical for turning this vision into reality. Well rounded RCS grads will be equipped to handle the challenges and capitalize on the opportunities of the 21st Century. I am proud to help lead this exciting effort and look forward to improving our community in collaboration with you.”
“The success of a community is intrinsically tied to the lives of its residents, schools and businesses. If a community is to be strong, partnerships must be forged among business, non-profits, government and residents working toward a common goal. Together, we can achieve successes that no one partner could achieve alone. I hope you will support Roxboro Community School’s Raise the Roof capital campaign and the special additional services it will provide to students in our Roxboro area.”
“In today’s competitive world, we can’t just sit back and wait for excellence in education to come our way. Raise the Roof will enable RCS to pursue the vision that when implemented will complement our existing facilities and services and make a significant difference in the quality of education available for those in our area.”
"Excellence in education is something currently provided by Roxboro Community School. However, their Raise the Roof initiative takes this kind of service to the top level of educational facilities and practices in educating our children. This is a special project that we strongly support and recommend that all in the Roxboro area support."
