Blue Valley School District turns megachurch into a children’s campus

The district bought the campus for $9 million in 2012 after the property at 7700 W. 143rd St. went into foreclosure and then set about doing $17 million in renovations. Now the 51-acre Hilltop Campus in Overland Park is done. With the slogan “Education Beyond Expectations” emblazoned on its building, it houses an early childhood learning center, conference center, Parents as Teachers program and Student Services.
