Galileo Preparatory Academy, a learner-centric, personalized private school will open its first campus in January 2022 and serve students in grades 6 through 12.
The school, which is under construction at the corner of Moores Lane and Franklin Road in Franklin, will bring together the best of traditional in-person instruction, virtual learning and technology-focused coursework. Co-founders Mark Claypool and John McLaughlin, two respected education industry veterans with decades of experience, collaborated on the Galileo Preparatory Academy concept.
“My entire career has centered on providing children with the tools they need to have a successful life,” Claypool said. “With GPA, we are reinventing learning for students in grades 6 through 12. Our first campus will open in January 2022 in Williamson County, and we will open multiple locations across the Southeast by fall 2022.”
