Charter school expands to Southeast Texas
BEAUMONT - By Justin Hinton, KFDM News
A Richardson, Texas-based charter school is adding three new campuses in Beaumont, Port Arthur and Houston.
Evolution Academy Charter School is a public high school that provides students with a school of choice and targets adolescents who have dropped out of high school, are seriously at risk of doing so, or are looking for a different form of education.
Were here to service youngsters, and ultimately, we have one goal in mind, and thats to graduate them, said founder, Cynthia Trigg.
The school opened 12 years ago and has graduated over 2000 students.
The Texas Education Agency recently granted their request to expand.
Antioch Missionary Baptist Church will house the Beaumont campus for at least one year, with the option of expanding for one more. After that, they will look for a new location.
Trigg says the school offers an 18-1 student to teacher ratio and a flexible schedule with year-round enrollment, making for an easy transition when switching from a traditional school or getting back into school.
We try and have those sessions carved into the schedule whereby they can pick up where they left off, said Trigg.
Trigg also said students will attend class 4 hours a day and partake in online components.
School starts September 3.
