Parents learn more about new Savannah charter school

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Parents gathered Wednesday to learn more about a new charter school in Savannah. Enrollment is underway for the Savannah Classical Academy. The free public charter school is set to open in August. The school will serve students in kindergarten through 6th grade, for now. They hope to serve grades k through 12 by 2019.

"We find that there is a great excitement. It is a very different philosophy than what we see currently in the education sector. We are much more traditional and much more teacher centered. We have a more rigorous content driven instruction. I think parents are hungry for that," said Barbara Grinn, founding board member.

Savannah Classical Academy will be located at the site of the former St. Pius High School on Anderson St.
