New Thales Academy Flowers Plantation Campus Opening A Year Early, Enrolling Now For 2022-2023 School Year
(Read press release from Thales Academy below)
Thales Academy, a college preparatory network of K-12 independent schools based in North Carolina, is opening its first campus in Johnston County. Thales Academy Flowers Plantation, located in the Flowers Plantation community near Clayton, NC, is opening a year earlier than expected and is enrolling now for the 2022-2023 school year. 

Thales Academy received a generous 19.18-acre land donation from Flowers Plantation to build the new campus in the award-winning master-planned community. Rebecca Flowers, owner of Flowers Plantation, explains: "We donated this land to Thales Academy to bring a strong educational option on-site to our families and we are excited to see children in our community thrive there."

“We are grateful to have the privilege of being a part of the Flowers Plantation community and appreciate Ms. Flowers' generosity," says Bob Luddy, Founder and Chairman of Thales Academy. "We look forward to bringing our high quality, affordable education model to families in Johnston County.”
Thales Academy Flowers Plantation will initially offer grades Pre-K through 7th grade for the inaugural school year, and the campus plans to add grades in future years, eventually providing a full K-12 offering, contingent on adequate interest and enrollment for staffing. The new campus is conveniently located off  Highway 42 just past the Harris Teeter and Publix in Flowers Plantation.

In the first week of admissions for the Flowers Plantation campus, Thales Academy received record interest, with over 120 families submitting applications for admission. “We knew Flowers Plantation would be a great area for Thales, but we are overwhelmed with the immediate positive response," comments Luddy. 

Admissions Director, Michelle Gruslin, notes, "We are accepting applications now! I encourage families to submit their applications as soon as possible as we process them on a first-come, first-served basis. Families interested in enrolling can learn more and apply online at: www.ThalesAcademy.org."

Thales Academy Flowers Plantation will be led by Administrator, Caitlin Moody, who has served most recently as the Assistant Administrator for Thales Academy Raleigh. Prior to joining the administrative team at the Raleigh campus, Moody taught at both Thales Academy Apex K-5 and Thales Academy Knightdale and provided Direct Instruction method training to fellow teachers. "I am grateful for the opportunity to bring our wonderful Thales Academy education to Flowers Plantation area families, and I am thrilled to open our doors to students this coming school year."

The Thales Academy Flowers Plantation campus will be similar to other Thales Academy campuses, boasting a beautiful, secure design, outfitted with the latest safety and security features, including controlled-access doors, security cameras, and background check systems for all visitors, as well as advanced HVAC units that provide up to 100% outdoor air for superior indoor air quality. The facilities will feature a modern, yet classical, aesthetic, which will allow students to learn in an environment modeled after beauty and order, and large floor-to-ceiling glass windows will flood classrooms with natural light. Ensuring students are well-versed in technology, the new campus will have Apple TVs in every classroom, as well as 1:1 school-issued iPads included in tuition for junior high (and eventually high school) students and shared iPad and MacBook carts for elementary students.

Thales Academy currently operates twelve campuses in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia, instructing over 4,800 students, and continues to add campuses as demand for its successful school model grows. With the opening of Thales Academy Flowers Plantation along with the new standalone high school campus in Cary also opening this summer, Thales Academy will grow to fourteen campuses in the 2022-2023 school year. Tuition at Thales Academy Flowers Plantation will be $4,800-$5,500 per year (varying by grade level) and scholarships, a Full Pay Discount, and payment plans are available.
