*NBA legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson has brought his education program to Georgia.
The Magic Johnson Bridgescape center, now open and accepting students in Atlanta, is designed to assist high school-age students who have either left school or are at risk of leaving. It allows students to earn a standard high school diploma as part of the Provost Academy Georgia, a statewide virtual charter high school. The program is free and is open to students aged 14 to 20.
The center is staffed by education teams that include teachers, counselors and other professionals and offers a mix of one-on-one and small group instruction, reports the AP.
Magic Johnson Bridgescape centers are already operating in Ohio, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. More Georgia locations are planned for Augusta, Macon and Savannah.
