Revolution Academy in Greensboro and the Robert J. Brown Leadership Academy in High Point were among 10 charter schools approved by the state on Thursday.

The News and Record reports both schools must successfully complete a planning year before being given their charter and allowed to enroll students.

Once the process is completed, they will join 11 other charter schools currently operating in Guilford County.

North Carolina charter schools are tuition-free and publicly financed.

Both schools plan to eventually enroll students in kindergarten through middle school.

Revolution Academy has a planned temporary location for its first school year but is looking for another location in Greensboro to house a permanent, newly constructed facility.
