Cobb Preparatory Academy, with a statewide attendance zone, would allow Georgia residents to be served by a public charter school right here in Southeast Cobb. We've just celebrated the vision of the 50th Anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington. The diverse mix of families from different economic and social backgrounds, all pursuing a focused, high standard of excellence and thematic curriculum, reflects the best ideas of Reverend King's "I Have a Dream" speech.
“It is not just the fulfillment of demand for seats in a classroom we seek. Delivering an education of value that builds character, imparts civic and personal responsibility, and prepares one to live their dream is a moral responsibility,” said Mayor Pro Tem and Smyrna Councilwoman Melleny Pritchett. “It is not enough to just send them to school; parents should have options and opportunity for their children to learn to be their best. One size fits all just doesn’t work.”
We are seeking concerned
local parents, business people, municipal and civic leaders to combine
forces for a new school that meets
unaddressed educational needs of local families and commuters. It won’t solve all of the desires of current,
future, and business residents, but it is another step in the right direction. It's another choice that allows you to choose a school in a neighborhood with an offering you feel best suits your child. And best of all, you won't have to move to enroll!
The mission of Cobb Preparatory Academy is to provide a safe learning environment where every student is challenged to reach his or her full potential. Cobb Preparatory Academy strives for academic excellence and a school culture with positive morale by providing a research-based and rigorous curriculum. Cobb Preparatory Academy will teach children the value of lifelong learning as well as the importance of contributing to society and community in positive ways.
Cobb Preparatory Academy’s charter petition has been submitted and hopes to open their doors to students in the 2014-15 school year. To ensure the effort is successful, we must have your help to confirm need, demand, and community input. Please take a moment to visit the website at www.cobbprepacademy.com and complete the survey AND support the petition. While you are at it, stop by the Facebook page and Like It!
