Pine Mountain, Ga. — The Impact 360 Institute, a Christian organization founded by the daughter of Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy, has opened a 23-acre academic campus in Pine Mountain, located 75 miles south of Atlanta.
The campus offers a nine-month college level experience with an emphasis on biblical worldview studies, leadership training and international service. The training occurs during a gap year for students between finishing high school and before starting college. Students are awarded 18 hours of university credit through Union University in Jackson, Tennessee, for successfully completing all requirements.
The campus includes a 36,000-square-foot academic and multipurpose building, two 21,000-square-foot residence halls, a 3,500-square-foot facilities and maintenance building, 150 spaces of parking, recreational fields and a faculty lounge. The property will ultimately accommodate between 80 and 100 students.
JLL’s Project and Development Services group has managed the project from conceptual design to delivery. Choate Construction Company was the general contractor, and Credo Design Architects is the architect-of-record for the project.
