PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Two new schools in St. Johns County won't be completely finished by the time students arrive on Monday.
Construction began early last year on Patriot Oaks Academy in the Durbin Crossing area and Valley Ridge Academy in Nocatee.
Both schools come with a price tag of more than $21 million and were included as part of the school district's five year facilities plan.
Approximately 1,000 pre-K through 7th grade students are expected to be enrolled in each school during their first years. Then, the schools will expand to include 8th graders beginning next year.
