A North Carolina-based private school is eyeing a popular Leland community for its next school.

Thales Academy is a network of private, non-sectarian community schools primarily located in North Carolina, including Raleigh, Cary, Apex and Wake Forest. The only campuses located outside North Carolina are in Franklin, Tennessee and Glen Allen, Virginia.

Thales Academy has submitted plans to the town of Leland to add a school nearby Brunswick Forest. Here’s what we know.

A glimpse at the campus

Plans to bring a private school campus to Brunswick Forest are being considered by the town of Leland.

According to site plans submitted to the town, the school’s Leland campus would be located along Hewett-Burton Road and the to-be-constructed Brunswick Village Boulevard.

The campus looks to host an elementary school building, a combined junior high and high school building, a gymnasium building and a playground. Plans also outline plenty of parking around the three buildings and playground.

Plans indicate the entrance to the campus would be located off Brunswick Village Boulevard.

What is Thales Academy?

Leland officials are considering plans that would bring a private school campus to Brunswick Forest.

According to its website, Thales Academy was founded in 2007 and currently serves more than 6,100 students across its 13 campuses. With few exceptions, many of the campuses serve students from pre-K to eighth grade. Three of its locations also enroll high school students: Raleigh, Apex and Cary.

According to the submitted site plans, Thales’ mission is “to provide an excellent and affordable education for students in Pre-K to 12th grades through the use of Direct Instruction and a Classical Curriculum that embodies traditional American values.”
