Named 2011 Georgia Charter School of the Year by the Coca-Cola Foundation, Amana Academy is a tuition-free chartered public school serving over 700 students in grades K-8 from Fulton County Schools districts. Located in Alpharetta, Amana Academy’s mission is to prepare students for high academic achievement beyond what they think possible, so that they become active contributors to building a better world.
Our approach is grounded in the Harvard-based Expeditionary Learning model, respecting teachers and school leaders as creative agents in igniting each student’s motivation and critical-thinking skills through in-depth, experience-based, integrated instruction across STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and the Humanities. Our definition of student success combines academic achievement, exemplary communication skills, world language proficiency in Arabic (one of the six official UN languages), single gender classroom instruction (grades 4-8), and relevant co-curricular and extracurricular activities.
We believe that academic success is built on strong character qualities of mutual social respect, positive discipline, collaborative learning and an ethic of civic and environmental responsibility shaped through engaging and challenging academic work.
We Are Crew, Not Passengers.
OPEN ENROLLMENT for the 2014-2015 Academic Year ongoing through January 1-31st.
