A private education company is interested in running a program out of Germantown High School’s now-shuttered building.

Camelot Schools, a longtime partner of the Philadelphia School District, works with District students who are in danger of dropping out, need to catch up on their academics, or have behavioral issues.

Kirk Dorn, Camelot’s spokesperson, told NewsWorks on Tuesday that the company will present a proposal for the site during a July 24 community meeting at Janes Memorial United Methodist Church, 47 E. Haines St.

The meeting, from 6 to 8 p.m., will be hosted by the offices of Eighth District City Councilwoman Cindy Bass and State Rep. Stephen Kinsey.

"We believe once we’ve had that dialogue that the community will be very much in support of our proposal," said Dorn.

The program would open in September.
