Did you know that ACA once housed The Heiskell School, a beloved Atlanta institution? Prior to becoming Atlanta Classical Academy, the Heiskell School served many of Atlanta’s students from pre-K through 8th grade from the early 1950s to 2014. Mr. Heiskell, who currently teaches 4th grade at ACA, discusses the history of the Heiskell school, his own path to ACA as well as what he loves about classical education. Please enjoy this in-depth interview with Mr. Heiskell, including photos of the early days of our campus and the original founders, Miriam and James Heiskell.
