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.
