The Commodore Conyers College and Career Academy, or 4C Academy, opened its doors to students last week, and many kids are already ‘Move On When Ready’ students.

The board had their first meeting inside the new facility on Wednesday to talk about the progress.

‘Move On When Ready’ means students can take college courses in high school when they’re ready.

That opportunity is opened to freshmen. Last year, there were only nine Move On When Ready freshmen students in the system, but this year they have 90.

“The students basically have to take the college entrance exam, whether that’s Albany State University’s exam or Albany Tech’s exam, which is the Accuplacer [test], or we use or SAT scores or ACT scores,” Principal Angie Gardner said. “We can take any of those scores.”

The test is offered every month, and students can start college courses the following semester, if they pass.
