SALEM — The Granite State Arts Academy, an arts-based charter school in Salem, was recently granted unconditional renewal by the state to continue operating for the next five years. Its leaders say the school’s model has been hugely successful, enrollment is growing and programs are expanding.

Recognizing that many students want to get out into the workforce or into graduate school as quickly as possible, Keene State College is launching a new program tailored to meet those needs.
