LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WFLI) - A new charter school in Lafayette is running out of spots for its first day of school.
The Excel Center held an open house Thursday to sign up students for classes.
Unlike some charter schools, the Excel Center provides its students with a Core 40 degree upon graduation.
Director of the Excel Center Nioka Clark says they provide everything the students may need to be successful in their classes.
"The Excel Center meets students where they are," Clark said. "So, we're going to look at their transcripts from the last time they were in high school, to see what credits they still need and we'll provide them with the support they need during those classes. So, tutors, extra help, things like that."
The Excel Center has already signed up about 100 students for its first day of classes in August.
