A Charter and Expert-Based School

To achieve the flexibility needed for an adaptive classroom experience, THINC College and Career Academy is chartered through the State of Georgia and is waivered from specific aspects of state law, rules and guidelines. Operating as a charter school enables THINC to tap into additional teaching and academic resources that are typically unavailable in a traditional school.
