A new private school that boasts a “learner-centric, personalized” model will open its first campus in January 2022 in Franklin.
Serving grades six through 12, Galileo Preparatory Academy, created by Mark Claypool and John McLaughlin, is currently under construction at the corner of Moores Lane and Franklin Road in Franklin. The private school will “bring together the best of traditional in-person instruction, virtual learning and technology-focused coursework,” according to a news release.
“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 six 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.”
