GAC was our pick over the Buckhead private schools. We are so glad we chose this school. GAC is different than the other private schools in that this place is so much more engaging with each individual student. Every teacher, every administrator knows my kids' names and not just that- knows ABOUT them. My older son has lunch with his teachers during summer. The academics are just as good as Lovett Pace Holy Innocents, etc. If not better. GAC also doesn't just pretend to be diverse. This school truly IS diverse. However, It feels like a family because everyone is genuinely nice to each other. You feel good going into the school. There is so much to do for the kids, a tremendous amount of events held that bring the school community together and opportunities for the kids at all grade levels. It's literally like summer camp every day at GAC. My kids love going to school and they are boys who are not "sit and be quiet" kids by any means!!

We have been at GAC since our children were in K5 (they are now in 7th and 6th grade). There are no words to describe how much it has meant for our family to be a part of the GAC community. The teachers have nurtured our children, challenging them to grow in knowledge and character. The leadership at the school is second to none. They are committed to advancing a school that has the right balance of faith and academics and that is both progressive and traditional in the best sense of the word. Nothing is lacking as the school offers students opportunities to excel in academics, athletics, and the arts. The school feels like home and there is no other place we would rather be.

GAC has been a wonderful school for our family. The faculty and programs are top-notch. The outstanding, plentiful opportunities in the arts are an especially big draw for our family. Every day is a great day to be a Spartan.

Choosing a private school is a process with many parts to it. It also takes 18-24 months to complete. This collection of articles deals with the first part of the process in which you begin to look at private schools and what they offer.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
Solid parent-teacher relationships have always been an important part of K-12 education. During this interminable pandemic, parent-teacher relationships have become even more important.
