A new school in Meridian is set to open its doors to 5th, 6th, and 7th graders on August 13th.
Alpha School, affiliated with Alpha Church, held an open house on Saturday. Officials offered information and tours of the school to prospective students and parents, as well as registered anyone ready to attend.
Pastor and principal David Nolen says he believes it's important to get involved in the community to help get the school started.
"Number one, it's fun for the kids," Nolen says. "Gives them something positive to do and just getting the word out about what's going on. I mean, we are the new school in town, so people need to learn about us. People need to know."
