Wayne Preparatory Academy is preparing to grow.
The public charter school on Tommy’s Road in Goldsboro broke ground for its new high school building on Thursday.
The new facility will include a full-size gym.
John Twitty is the Executive Director of Wayne Prep.
Twitty says they’re giving students and parents a choice with their often web-based curriculum.
Construction on the new Wayne Prep high school and gym will begin in July and the project is expected to be completed in 8 – 9 months.
The new facility carries a price tag of $3.6 million.
Wayne Preparatory Academy opened in 2014 serving grades K – 4 and has grown since then.
Twitty says Wayne Prep started with about 400 students, but they’ve grown and have about 887 enrolled this year.
Next year, the school expects to have over 1,100 enrolled students.
