ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

One school's empty desks will soon be filled with students for the very first time.

The Commodore Conyers College and Career Academy or 4C Academy hosted an open house for its high school students on Sunday afternoon.

Brandon Day, a rising freshman, said he's ready for the next step in his education.

"I'll be most excited about learning about new things, meeting new people, meeting a lot of new people, and just starting school altogether," Day said.

Day will attend the 4C Academy in Dougherty County with dozens of other freshmen.

Chris Hatcher, 4C Academy CEO, said 70 percent of the incoming students are freshmen like Brandon, and with school just a few days away scholars are getting a first look at their new school.

"I think this open house shows us a lot of the school and the school will give us a lot of opportunities to get ready for college and our careers and help us learn a lot," Day explained.

Sunday's open house allowed students to meet with different teachers, and explore where they will spend their high school years.

"It's a big start for us," Hatcher said.

"We are in the collaboration room. I think this would be really cool. This is where students can come and talk and study together. And we also think we can have different kinds of debates in here," Day said and showed WALB News 10.

This new school is just a building block in Day's career path.

"After my four years here I will hope to get into college so I can do more graphic designing and so I can go throughout with my dream of becoming a video game designer," Day said.

The program offers 14 different career paths for students to explore. 

About 440 students will attend the 4C Academy when its doors open Tuesday.
