ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) - Finn Academy in Elmira has been approved for five years of its charter by the SUNY Board of Trustees Committee on Charter Schools.

According to the school, it's the second time the academy has been recommended for renewal since the school opened in August 2015. The school says the first renewal was granted in February 20-20 for a period of three years.

Last August, SUNY officials visited Finn Academy to observe teachers and staff members after the school applied for renewal.

Finn Academy was established at the former Ernie Davis Middle School on Lake Street
in Elmira.

The school is currently enrolling scholars for the 2023-2024 school year in grades K-6.
