Open Quote Atlanta Classical Academy practice discrimination against students who are less fortunate and have disabilities.

If you don’t want unreasonable demands on your child that includes verbal attacks, humiliation, degradation, and chronic rejection of your child DO NOT ENROLL!! (unless your family has money) Both of my children came with accomodations from their previous school and student services department refuse to provide the same adequate services. My youngest son was confined to the classroom and threatened by the dean, denied participation in extra curricular activities including the schools field trip. My oldest was harassed, bullied, and called a Nialus by the previous principal. Some of the administration and teachers are unfair, racist, inconsiderate liars.

Staff ignore your emails, calls and barely speak however when a parent or student of a different background they are smiling and having conversations.

When I finally was put on the principal’s calendar and then meeting was canceled later the same evening.

Now I see why 8 staff members and a host of students did not return from last year.

The previous comment is so accurate ACA is a public private school on taxpayers dime. They do not provide assistance or include all students scholarship opportunities for “certain” students. Close Quote

Open Quote I love this school. My three boys attend ACA. The teachers are amazing and there is a tremendous amount of learning that takes place everyday. There are also many different clubs and sports offered and a great Fine Arts program at the school. The school values good character and uses the virtues to help children grow and learn.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
