BLACKFOOT, Idaho -

A new charter school in Blackfoot is accepting applications for the upcoming school year.

Bingham Academy is a high school set to open in the fall. It will be located in the Riverside Plaza Shopping Center in Blackfoot. The school's mission is to help students earn college credits. They could even earn their associate degrees when they graduate.

"Students that are interested in coming to our charter school should sign their lottery form where they give us information about themselves and parents, so that in March we will be able to draw those names to determine who's on the list to get in for this fall," said Principal Doug Owen.
