The vacant Erie Business Center on West 9th Street will be getting transformed into an online charter school.
In June, Harrisburg-based Commonwealth Charter Academy purchased the building for $600,000. They will turn it into a public online kindergarten through 12th grade family service center.
Students can meet with counselors and teachers and get tutoring assistance.
“The whole focus is having a footprint in a community where we have students enrolled and families sometimes need in-person services.” said Tim Eller.
Eller says they’re in the early stages of planning renovations. The goal is to be up and running by fall of 2022.
