School Founded On Second Chances Opens Soon In Kensington

September 6, 2016

EXCERPT: “A Kensington school with a focus on helping struggling students opens for the first time next month.  The Liguori Academy applied to be a charter school two years ago, but was turned away by the School Reform Commission. That didn’t deter school president Mike Marrone… ‘Plan B was really Plan A, always from the beginning,’ he says.

On September 6th, the school at Allegheny and Emerald opens as a private high school, with 40 freshmen to start. Marrone says the goal is to reengage struggling students.”
