New academy preps student for college and career path

DUBLIN, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A new school in Middle Georgia is working with several counties to prepare high school kids for college and their future career paths.

The Heart of Georgia College and Career Academy partnered with Dublin City Schools, Laurens, Bleckley and Wheeler County School Systems to launch the new school within the upcoming year.

Communications liaison for Dublin City Schools, Michelle Thublin, says it will be the first academy in the state to offer advanced level courses from the Southern Regional Education Board.

“It’s going to be just a great bridge, because it starts off with ninth grade and then they get to  do it for ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth grade,” says Thublin.

The meeting starts tonight at 7:00 p.m. and ends at 8:30 p.m.
