ATLANTA CLASSICAL ACADEMY
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.
“Our promise is to surround your children with kind-hearted adults
who will teach and model virtuous living and the pursuit of intellectual and personal achievement.”
- Matthew Kirby, Executive Director
Athletics will provide a vehicle in which to teach student-athletes to become virtuous citizens. Atlanta Classical will maintain proper management of a community in which every individual recognizes his or her particular role and performs his or her own task as part of a properly functioning community.

What a year for our high school cross country team! Earlier this month, our boys and girls took on high schools across Georgia in the State Finals in Carrolton, Ga.
Last year, the PTCA noticed that there were many parents, grandparents, and friends of Atlanta Classical who wanted to volunteer, but we just didn’t know how to get everyone involved. This year we are taking steps to change that!
