DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Hundreds of students have sent in their applications for a new career academy in Dougherty County. 

Right now, administrators at Commodore Conyers College and Career Academy, also known as the 4C Academy, are accepting applications for students and teachers. 

Roughly 300 students who will be entering 9th grade next year have applied to the 4C Academy so far.

The school is set to open in the fall, and administrators are accepting applications for rising 9th grade students. 

Students already in high school can apply too, if they are first time 'Move on When Ready' students.

Principal Angie Gardner said parents and students are constantly expressing their excitement. 

"I've had emails, I've had students to see me out and just say I'm so excited about the college and career academy. They say they just can't wait to explore and find the perfect career. They are very excited about taking the college courses within a structure environment," said Gardener.

Students within Dougherty, Calhoun, Terrell and Baker counties can apply. 

The students can speak with their guidance counselors for more information.

The school is now accepting applications for teachers, to fill 29 open positions.  They are looking for folks who have a masters degree in their field. 

Those fields include nursing, education, engineering, computer information, film and aviation among others.
