ATLANTA (WAOK)-One of the most talked about issues on the ballot next week in Georgia is the charter school amendment question. Both sides have been very vocal on whether to support or reject the amendment which would give the state legislature the right to create charter schools. There is another alternative to a good education for your child, parochial or private schools. I spoke to Headmaster Vickie Turner of the Augustine Preparatory Academy in Decatur about what they offer to families.
A christian or parochial school education is not as expensive as some private schools and there are financial aide opportunities available. Augustine Preparatory Academy is on the campus of Greater Travelers Rest Baptist Church at 4650 Flat Shoals Parkway. They have open enrollment going on now for more info call 404-326-5132 or log onto augustineprep.info.
