A K-12 public charter school serving residents of the City of Atlanta.

A Classical Education for Modern Times

Every parent wants to prepare his or her children to thrive in the 21st century, and some may think today’s world requires a new approach. Atlanta Classical Academy’s position is that technology has changed, but human nature has not. Still, the highest approach is to train the minds and strengthen the hearts of our children, and to imbue them with the knowledge and virtue necessary for building happy lives full of meaning and purpose. We do this through a rigorous, classical, great-books curriculum in a K-12, small-school environment where every student is known. In this inspiring work, we invite you to join us.

“Schools celebrate the work of teaching students to think critically for themselves, but we should not forget to consider what students are studying. To what ideas are graduates applying their newfound skills of analysis? What questions do they ask? Most importantly, what do they love? At Atlanta Classical, hearts and minds are trained together and we seek to order a student’s affections toward what is worthy of contemplation: truth, goodness, and beauty.”

- Josh Andrew, Head of School
