We value each unique voice and cultivate an environment where students encourage and inspire each other.
Our campus in the Montgomery County Agricultural Reserve enables students to learn inside and outside the classroom.
We use a hands-on approach in preschool to encompass the five developmental domains of children: social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional.
Our buddy program pairs younger grades with older grades so students develop meaningful relationships throughout the year with students in other age groups. Older students have genuine opportunities to be role models while younger children know they have special friends looking out for them
Barnesville School of Arts & Sciences is an independent private school that offers families an innovative preschool through 8th grade academic program grounded in a culture of joy, support, and excellence.
Our students benefit from an academic program that produces critical thinkers who thrive in the classroom and beyond; a rich curriculum that balances arts, sciences, technology, and outdoor education; small class sizes that create a safe forum for taking risks; highly skilled and creative teachers who tailor instruction to each student; hands-on learning on our beautiful 50-acre campus that encourages imagination, exploration, and respect for the environment; and a caring community that fosters independent thinking and expression.
