Magic Johnson Bridgescape Center Opens in Augusta

A new charter school program designed to get dropouts to graduate has opened in Augusta.

The Magic Johnson Bridgescape Learning Center will serve students in grades nine through 12 who have dropped out or are at risk of quitting school. The center is operated by Provost Academy, a state-chartered specialty school and located Downtown Augusta at 360 Bay Street.

"Those students attending here each day get the opportunity to receive their high school diploma, not their GED and this is a free high school for our students," said Jonathan Woods, principal of the Magic Johnson Bridgescape Learning Center in Augusta.

Students may attend morning or afternoon sessions where they will participate in online, computer-assisted learning as well as one-on-one and small group instruction. There are no limits to how much a student can tackle.

"Here I can go to five or seven sessions, I can go at my own speed but still retain all the information I take," said Ian Donell, a student at the center. "I just feel like I grow and become a stronger me by being here."

Augusta is the fourth Georgia location for this center. The others are in Atlanta, Savannah and Macon.

There will be an open house for the Magic Johnson Bridgescape Center on Friday.

Open House:

Where:   Magic Johnson Bridgescape Center

360 Bay Street - 2nd Floor

When:    Friday, September 20th

Time:      10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
