Julie Hiers– Scintilla Charter Academy
We were excited to welcome Julie
Hiers last Wednesday to hear about the
new Scintilla Charter Academy. We
were able to learn more about Charter
Schools: they are tuition free, open to
everyone, still have to meet the same
graduation requirements, and they are
often funded by philanthropy. Today
there are over 315 charter schools in
Georgia and now Hiers is starting one
right here in Valdosta. The name
“Scintilla” means a small spark. She chose this name because every fire starts
with a spark. Scintilla will have project based learning, service learning,
subject specific teachers, and standard based report cards. The school will be
located on East Park Ave and student enrollment will start in January and
interviews for staff will be in February and March. We are excited to see this
school become a success and get our community excited about education
again. For more information visit
