  • Atlanta Youth Academies (AYA) provide quality education on par with top independent schools.
  • There is one big difference, however.
  • AYA is designed for urban children and youth whose families believe in the importance of education but who do not have access, either financially or geographically, to excellent private schools.
  • Atlanta Youth Academies offer a quality, Christ-centered education to inner-city students.
  • The school enrolls students from PreK-8th grade.
  • AYA is currently located in the Thomasville/Norwood Manor neighborhood.
  • A second AYA Campus for K-3 exists at the Andrew and Walter Young YMCA on Campbellton Road, SW. Class size is limited to 12 students, attending an 11-month school year.
  • The AYA approach is to show faith in action through Christian values woven into and modeled in all activities.
  • We believe that teaching students about Christ can best be done through real-life behavior.
  • By graduation, AYA students are stable and focused beyond their years.
  • They are ready for the demands of high school, from advanced academic work to personal tests of character that challenge all young people on the road to adulthood.
