Online school to hold local information meetings

Provost Academy, Georgia's newest tuition-free online public high school, will host three community information meetings Thursday at Jeff Maxwell Branch Library in Augusta.

Monica Henson, the recently appointed Provost Academy Georgia executive director, and community outreach specialists will be on hand to meet with parents and prospective students to provide information about this new education choice now available to all residents of Georgia.
Provost Academy Georgia is a state-authorized public online high school that is free of charge to residents of Georgia. Students work toward their regular public high school diploma as they would in a traditional school.

Provost Academy is the only online high school backed by EdisonLearning, a for-profit company based in New York that partners with charter schools and provides other education services. 

The community information meetings are scheduled for 10-11 a.m., 2-3 p.m. and 6-7 p.m. Thursday at the Jeff Maxwell Branch Library, 1927 Lumpkin Road.
