The Anchor School
The Anchor School is a proposed 6th-12th grade academy focused on supporting families and students through adolescence and the transition to adulthood. Our social and emotional development curriculum; wraparound services; and small advising, teaching, and counseling ratios nurture the whole child. Our professional development for teachers, commitment to rigorous academics for students, and project-based learning courses ensure every graduate is ready to thrive in the college or career of their choice. Our strategic partnerships with families, industry professionals, local colleges, and mental health professionals ensure we create a village of partners who develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence our students need to thrive in our school and beyond. The Anchor School plans to open in Metro Atlanta in Fall of 2023.
