The Cottage School`s history of success repeatedly demonstrates that students who come to the school disillusioned or discouraged--some to the point of "giving up" on education--flourish in the school`s environment and emerge as independent, capable, and successful young adults. Carefully designed to meet State of Georgia high school graduation standards, as well as HOPE scholarship requirements, the curriculum also exposes students to various situations and subjects that assist them in unlocking their own unique talents and finding their niche in life. All seniors must prepare an approved post-secondary plan as part of graduation requirements.The centerpiece of The Cottage School program teaches students the basic work skills that will prove essential to them as adults. Among the school`s unique learning techniques is a time management system, similar to the daily planners utilized by many adults. Students receive assignments in two-week blocks, enabling them to engage in short-term planning, with rewards for completing tasks on a timely basis. An instant "task feedback system" rewards students for completing assignments on time through the payment of a mock "salary" which they manage through a checking and savings account. Students learn that wages can increase for a job well done, and they learn the value of saving to pay for privileges such as off-campus activities or trips.Every other week, the students participate in "levels," a model of the corporate staff meeting, in which students can apply for promotions, give or receive feedback from peers and teachers, and discuss issues of interest. Dress code and respectful ethic builds awareness and appreciation for appropriate workplace attire.
In addition to the traditional day school program, The Cottage School offers a wide range of educational opportunities, including:
- Summer High School for Credit: customized academic instruction, either for current students or students from area schools requiring specific courses for full or half Carnegie Credit units;
- Summer Success: Middle School Enrichment, English, Math,
- Summer sports camps;
