State commission approves tuition-free charter school for Albany
New Schools Georgia, Inc. (“NSG”) proudly announces that the Georgia Charter Schools Commission has approved its application to open Collegiate Academy of Albany (“CAA”), a new, independent, tuition-free charter school to serve families in Albany and the surrounding areas. CAA will open in August 2020 and serve up to 376 students in Albany/Dougherty County in grades K-3 on a first-come, first-served basis with no admissions testing. The school will grow by one grade per year until the school hits a capacity of 1,450 students in grades K-12. If demand exceeds seats available, enrollment will be conducted through a public lottery.
Allen Hughes, Chairman of the Board at New Schools Georgia said, “Collegiate Academy of Albany will offer Albany-area families a high-quality education, preparing Albany’s children to compete and succeed in the 21st century economy.”
When it opens, CAA will become part of the SABIS® Network, a global network of schools that are backed by a 134-year old tradition of educational excellence. Schools in the SABIS® Network implement an integrated, comprehensive K-12 program that uses dynamic materials, proven methods, and cutting-edge technology to deliver superior results. Mr. Hughes said, “SABIS has been proven to deliver results in educating a wide variety of students from all around the world. We feel very comfortable in their ability to add Collegiate Academy of Albany to their list of successful schools.” For more information about SABIS, visit: https://www.sabis.net/
