Teresa Dye lived in Kentucky her entire life before moving to Atlanta seven years ago with her family.  She graduated with a B.S. in Special Education from Eastern Kentucky University and a M. Ed. from Northern Kentucky University.  She taught in the public school for a total of nine years, spent ten years caring for her children, while educating them within the home for five of those years, and taught at a classical Christian school in Atlanta for four years.  She has four children. Her oldest child, Faith, was a part of the first graduating class of Atlanta Classical Academy and is currently attending a university in Ohio. She has a son in eleventh grade and a sixth-grade son at Atlanta Classical Academy and another sixth-grade son in another Atlanta school. In her limited free time, she enjoys going to Broadway shows with her husband, taking day hikes with the family, and serving in various ways in her church.

The mission of Atlanta Classical Academy is to develop graduates in mind and character through a classical, content-rich curriculum that emphasizes the principles of virtuous living, traditional learning, and civic responsibility.
