New Learning Academy Debuts in Mason Co.

When school bells ring Thursday in Mason County, a new learning academy will debut at the high school. The Mason County Learning Academy concept was approved and funded by the Mason County Board of Education to help struggling students experience a new way of learning and provide an avenue of hope toward graduation. With a dedicated faculty, a revamped building, new computers and flexible hours, the district's investment of $150,000 plus is focused on helping students who are on the verge of failing, thus becoming a drop-out statistic.
