ODESSA - West Texas parents have a new school to choose from next year.

Compass Academy Charter School is getting ready to open for business.

At the end of September, the State Board of Education granted them their charter.

Next year, they will begin teaching classes for kindergarten through second grade, then they'll add a grade every year after that.

Ultimately they will offer classes from kindergarten through twelfth grade.

School officials say being a new school will give them a new approach to teaching.

Open enrollment begins in August 2011, but you can start applying early for next year.

For more information, you can find them on the web.
