Today marked the groundbreaking for a new school in Leon county Florida. Tallahassee Classical belongs to a network of roughly 30 charter schools nationwide as part of the Hillsdale College Charter School program. This is the 7th Hillsdale charter school in the state.
The school’s executive team will be comprised of 8 people, including some board members and local law enforcement personnel who volunteer their time to ensure safety on campus.
More than 400 of the 500 available seats have already been accepted, according to the school. More than 100 applicants are waiting for the Feb. 27 lottery. A ribbon cutting on the school’s building is planned for early July.
