Studies have shown that in a traditional school, only 3.5 hours a day are used for instruction. So we have crafted our schedule to consist of shorter days with much more focused instruction periods. Students receive the traditional benefits of school, such as field trips, yearbooks, dances, and graduation, while preserving time in which to pursue their passions.
Our curriculum is delivered at the honors level and above, using superior content and proven modes of delivery. We offer AP classes along with electives in Foreign Language, Social Sciences, Business, Technology, and the Arts. Students cultivate subject mastery and critical thinking skills while taking ownership of their education. We work with parents to develop the whole child, through mutual respect and character-driven expectations.
We employ talented, highly trained teachers with a gift for working with young people.
Our rigorous curriculum, accredited by AdvancED, challenges students to engage with and master the material.
Our compressed schedule empowers students to pursue extracurricular passions without sacrificing academic quality.
With small class sizes and focus on real learning, we expect students to create original works and share their truth.
With parents and teachers working together, students learn to be independent and accountable for their decisions.
We meet three days per week with an optional half day. Students have the option for a full day Tuesday through Thursday. Traveling students maintain educational momentum through instructional support and teacher communication.

The school has given my son the gift of time. He has time to sing with the Georgia Boy Choir and take drum lessons, but also time to unwind.
