The U.S. Department of Agriculture has given a $140,000 loan to Lake Superior Academy in Sault Ste. Marie. The elementary school will use the money to construct a classroom addition to expand instructional space.

By 2022 the building is expected to serve about 100 students per year.

Previously, USDA Rural Development awarded a $265,000 Community Facilities loan. The state of Michigan is also providing $575,000 for the project.
