School Notes

  • Peachtree Academy is a collaborative community of educators, students and families united in our efforts to provide a college preparatory school which embraces Christian values and promotes the highest educational standards possible.  While teaching to national standards, instructional strategies are carefully selected to include: hands-on learning, content enriching projects, progress monitoring, data-driven instruction, field trips and use of state of the art technological resources in the development of students as problem solvers and critical thinkers.  We view parents, grandparents, students, and teachers as vital components to the success of each child.  We believe that families play a crucial role in all parts of school life. The Academy embodies its purpose in every action taken.  From the admissions process to the identification of faculty, the school seeks the best families and staff who can collaborate to build an exemplary program that will positively impact our community.

As requested by the admin of Peachtree Academy this is a positive review of this school!If you're like me and want someone controlling every aspect of your child's life, in or out of school, Peachtree Academy is the place for you!If you want a steady decline in students attending each grade! Then Peachtree is the school for you! If you If you enjoy a revolving door of teachers, then saddle up bucko and get on over to this school!If you like a school that chooses which policies they enforce at a whim then make Peachtree your home!If making tough decisions on which extracurricular activities keeps you up at night, then Peachtree Academy is great! They have a vast selection of two activities that don't involve sports.Book club! Art Club! Drama Club! Science Club! Band!- none of these are present and thank God for that. We don't want our children learning how to think! What are we? A school of higher education?! No! We are Peachtree!If you get depressed over the same old boring student handbook that doesn't change throughout the year...then drink down some Panther juice for Peachtree! The student handbook is changed multiple times and with no notification! Or the chance to discuss changes! And you don't have access to old revisions at all! So you don't have to take up space on your computer! I was once like you, gentle internet peoples, I was afraid that I had different opinions. Then my family came to Peachtree. Where GroupThink is the norm! Truth is determined by consensus full of codified arbitrary directives! I don't need to have individual thought patterns as my thoughts are determined for me and my child!If a steady decline in students attending by grade doesn't concern you! Then head on over to Peachtree! Where they have a limited student body of high schoolers and five total seniors! With numbers like that it's no wonder they have a 100% rating of seniors graduating and attending college!In short, we want your mind... and to be one of our kind!Come join us!Plus, the CEO/CFO needs more campaign funds!

We came to Peachtree Academy in 2015 when my oldest child was entering 6th grade. The idea of sending my child to public middle school scared me! That's why we decided to go the Peachtree Academy route. We have been so happy with the education and this school. This was the best decision we could have made. With that said, next year my other son will be attending when he enters 6th grade as well.
