Springtime in Atlanta… doesn’t it feel great!
In four weeks, the Superintendent will take a position and the APS board will vote to determine the future of Atlanta Classical Academy.
Even as we prepare for summer, it is urgent that we do TWO THINGS:
1. Write to the Superintendent and to each school board member, and remind them how urgent it is to create ACA, a new and outstanding Atlanta public school. They DO read their mail, and they need to hear from the voters and taxpayers. (There is a sample letter, address, and email addresses below, but please feel free to share your personal perspective.)
2. Ask ONE more person to sign the petition at AtlantaClassical.org. Signatures from City of Atlanta residents will be most powerful, but you need not have children in the school system to sign. The availability of world-class public schools would benefit everyone!

If you are new to ACA, we invite you to read the posts that follow. Our aim is to pique your interest in classical education and to communicate how a K-12, public charter school would be a major enhancement to Atlanta Public Schools and our city.
Be sure to ‘friend’ us on Facebook.
Finally, please invite your friends or join us on Monday, May 20, 2013 at 6:30 pm at the Covenant Presbyterian Church at 2461 Peachtree Road, Atlanta, GA 30305. We will host a short presentation followed by a Q&A session with several of ACA’s founding board members. Please RSVP here. This is a free, public event.
Please help us now so that our team can serve you beginning in the Fall of 2014.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Board:
Thank you for your leadership and for your work on behalf of the students of Atlanta. I am writing to voice my support for Atlanta Classical Academy, a K-12 public charter school proposing to open in the Fall of 2014.
I hope you will vote to approve this charter when it is presented to the Board, and that you will encourage your fellow Board members to join you in supporting Atlanta Classical Academy.
Thank you for your consideration.
