BOISE -- Do you know a boy or girl between 16 and 18 who has dropped out of high school, or is at risk of dropping out? 

There's a new academy opening in Idaho that you might want to learn more about.

Right now, construction crews and staff in the northern Idaho town of Pierce are getting the Idaho Youth Challenge Academy ready for its first ever class in January.

The school will give students who choose to go there a very structured, military style experience -- focusing on academics, personal responsibility and life skills.

It's basically a second chance to earn high school credits and get back on track in life.

The academy is free to attend and is taking applications now.

Representatives of the Idaho Youth Challenge Academy are hosting an informational meeting Monday at 7 p.m. at the Boise Senior Center on Robbins Road.
