Atlanta Classical Academy was founded in 2014 as a public charter school open to students who reside within the Atlanta Public Schools district. Originally launched as a K-8 school, Atlanta Classical Academy has grown to serve students in grades K-12. In preparation for its charter renewal, GSG was engaged to facilitate the design of a strategic plan.
The GSG team provided:
Analysis of data on school performance and parent perceptions
Engagement of key stakeholders including donors, board members, and teachers to understand perceptions of Atlanta Classical Academy and areas of greatest growth
An environmental scan to understand the local and national trends in college admissions from new charter schools and classical academies
Facilitation of sessions with the Strategic Planning Committee and Board of Directors to create the strategic direction and strategic plan components
Guidance on preparation for charter renewal.
The school continues to provide high-quality classical, liberal arts education to its students and in late 2018, Atlanta Classical Academy’s charter renewal agreement was unanimously approved by the Atlanta Public Schools Board.
