WAKE FOREST, N.C. (WNCN) — Thales Academy, a network of private community schools located primarily in central North Carolina will reopen their doors to students and staff in July, a release said.

According to an email from a school spokesperson, Thales Academy will begin their school year “as scheduled” on July 20.

“We believe that it is in our students’ best interest that they return to school and continue progressing in their studies,” the spokesperson wrote.
