New private school in Fort Erie plans to open for September 2019
Fort Erie is getting a new private school.
Last Friday, the District School Board of Niagara and the town of Fort Erie transferred ownership of the previous high school and elementary school on Central Ave to the Fort Erie International academy.
Officials with the private school say renovations will begin to prepare the building to welcome students between grades seven and twelve this September.
School representatives say they will have an 'East meets West' perspective and follow the Ontario Curriculum.
Officials are in the process of becoming an accredited Ontario school with the ability to grant Ontario Secondary School Diplomas.
