BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

The Beaufort County School District held ground-breaking ceremonies Tuesday for the construction of River Ridge Academy, a planned prekindergarten through eighth-grade school on Davis Road in Bluffton.

The future home of the River Ridge Raiders – school colors of purple, black and silver – is planned to be open for the 2015-16 school year with a projected enrollment of 1,200 students. The building's capacity is 1,400 students.

"After months of planning, it's exciting to see construction get under way," said Superintendent Jeff Moss, "Our team will work hard to stay on time and on budget as we build a cutting-edge school to serve our students and the Bluffton community."
