Ninth-grade classes for The Georgia Cyber Academy will begin next month following the state Board of Education’s approval of an amended application. (See OnlineAthens article here.) Now, 660 rising freshmen will be able to continue their studies online with the school, which currently has 6,000 students enrolled in grades 1-8. Currently, there are more than 1,000 students on the academy’s waiting list, according to an official of Georgia Families for Public Virtual Education.
Two other online schools, Kaplan Academy of Georgia and Provost Academy Georgia, have received charters but are not yet operational due to funding problems. To visit the Georgia Cyber Academy’s website, click here.
