Life Bible College of Los Angeles was the only bidder to step forward when the La Cañada school board announced plans to close Foothill Intermediate School campus on Foothill at Cornishon Avenue due to declining enrollment. The college offered a 10-year lease at $450,000 with an option to buy. It also sought a $2 million credit on a $10 million purchase price because it would be making improvements to the campus, would be willing to lease back the gym for the school district's use and because there would be no real estate agent fees involved in the transactions.
