All Georgia kids deserve access to high-quality public-school options.
The pandemic exposed how a one-size-fits all public-school system does not work for every student and family. Charter schools offer a different approach to public school, one that gives passionate teachers the flexibility to teach creatively and deliver the individualized education every student deserves, preparing them to succeed in college, career and life. Because all Georgia kids, regardless of zip code, race, ethnicity, income or ability deserve access to high-quality public-school options that best meet their needs and help them reach their full potential.
Until every child has the chance to attend a high-quality public-school that works for them, we need more educational options. Public charter schools give families that opportunity.

“Attending Pataula Charter Academy greatly assisted me in fulfilling my future ambitions through reinforcing qualities such as leadership, perseverance, and integrity.”
“Because of my autism, previous schools that I attended isolated me from others in the classroom and worked to keep me under control, and I suffered for it,” said Robert Christopher, a senior at Tapestry Public Charter School. “Tapestry’s approach is the opposite, focusing on integration into the classroom and providing me with the support I need to thrive. In part, because of Tapestry, I have now been accepted to Georgia Tech, and I’m of the opinion that I would not have had the chance had I been placed into a traditional middle/high school.”
“Baconton Community Charter School has helped me build the confidence I need to move to the next level upon graduation. I feel I am prepared to enter college and be successful. I’m thankful for the opportunities and choices I have been given to expand and grow as a person as well as a student.”
“KIPP Atlanta Collegiate (KAC) has helped me in my educational journey by preparing and informing me about going to college. By building strong relationships with the teachers and staff, I am able to receive any kind of emotional support in case I need it. Lastly, by having such people as reliable as the staff and teachers in KAC, I am continuing to grow and become a better person from when I first entered the high school.”
