Private Schools In Atlanta: Your Guide To The Best Options

When public school isn’t the right fit for your child, private school becomes the answer. Whether you’re on the look out for elementary, middle school or high school options, the search can be daunting.

Galloway School, Woodward Academy, Holy Innocents, Atlanta International School…everyone knows about these schools. But where else can students and parents find a sense of community, that perfect foreign language class, or the ideal supplement to superior act/sat scores? Let our guide help!

Sudbury School of Atlanta

Sudbury School of Atlanta is a mixed-age, democratic, self-directed learning community run by students and staff that enrolls individuals ages 4 to 18. Empowered with freedom and responsibility, students have unlimited time and space to explore their interests. Students learn to trust themselves and direct their own learning, all while discovering a deep sense of community. The Sudbury model fosters cooperation and active citizenship, as every student has a voice and a vote in how the school operates. The Sudbury model has been trailblazing a revolution in education since the first school opened in 1968, and we are proud to be the only Sudbury school in the state of Georgia. Come and see the magic that happens when young people are full respected, deeply empowered, and truly free. We offer tours during school hours and monthly weekend open houses if you’d like to learn more.

Lesli made her way to Atlanta over 20 years ago, after living in Germany, Japan and six U.S. states. She relishes the discovery of obscure, offbeat and unwonted places, and she will chat up any willing stranger to uncover a new secret locale.

After 18 years in software development, Lesli bailed on the corporate scene. When she’s not traveling, she’s hiking in the mountains or checking out Atlanta’s culinary scene, whiskey in hand.

Lesli has two kiddos -Cooper and Elliot- plus two bonus kids currently at UGA, and she’s happily married to her soul mate.
