Progressive Christian Academy likely to stay open another year

Progressive Christian Academy, which has struggled financially in the past year to stay open, is on track to open for another school year, according to the school’s principal.

“We’re coming along and continuing to get enrollment,” Principal Betty Tolbert said Tuesday.

She said pre-k students return to school Thursday and remaining grades return Monday.

The private school in Macon’s Pleasant Hill neighborhood, which has been opened since 1985, needed to raise $40,000 in January to pay its mortgage or close, but in the end came up with the money.
