ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Fresh Start Academy moved to its new location and Monday was the first full day in the new building.

The academy moved because of increasing enrollment numbers and outgrowing the former location.

Patricia Jackson, the Fresh Start Academy director, said the new location will help many current and future students.

“We now have the room to add many more students. We know that there are students out there who need a diploma, who have fallen behind and need to get caught up, who have given up hope,” said Jackson.

Jackson said the academy is currently in the enrollment process.
