TRA gets new life

Montgomery, AL (WSFA) -  Employees of two defunct private schools unite to open a new school in Southeast Montgomery less than a month after Taylor Road Academy fell to bankruptcy.

Nearly 100 families came to Calvary Baptist Church for an informational meeting.

The new school will keep the initials but change the name to Three Rivers Academy, and it will consist of a mix of students and staff from Calvary Christian and Taylor Road Academies.

Organizers are opening the door to other students who want to attend a private school that's somewhat affordable.

Organizers are quick to point out, this is by no means a continuation of Taylor Road Academy, distancing themselves from the financially failed facility.

They're already planning to start the school at Calvary Christian's location on Troy Highway.

As of Friday night, sixty students committed to the school, and organizers have thirty to forty more potential students.

But, they tell us they need at least 150 kids to make it happen.

The cost to attend Three Rivers Academy hovers around $4200 per year.
