OVERLAND PARK, KS (AP) -

The Blue Valley School District has completed the $17-million transformation of a megachurch into an educational complex.

The Kansas City Star reports Wednesday that the Hilltop Campus in Overland Park will be ready for class on Aug. 18.

The district bought the First Family Church for $9 million in 2012 after the property went into foreclosure.

Principal Kendall Burr says the building has grown to 126,000 square feet since the district added a tornado shelter. The 51-acre campus houses an early childhood learning center, a conference center and various programs.

Burr says the learning center will serve about 1,000 families, especially those within the south and southwest area of the district.
