Buckhead Prep is an award-winning, academic preschool with a unique rapid-learn phonetic reading, handwriting, and math program. Following the proven Buckhead Prep individualized curriculum, their highly qualified educators engage with each child through individual and group instruction leading to a solid academic foundation, confident social skills, and thorough preparation for a lifetime of learning. In addition to building solid reading, handwriting, and math skills, the children learn a great deal about the world they live in and enjoy art, music, and outdoor play.Buckhead Prep has prepared hundreds of children to move on to top-tiered private and public schools throughout Atlanta, other areas of the U.S., and throughout the world.
The classrooms are open and serene with an abundance of natural light. The curriculum is somewhat Montessori inspired, so when a child is done with their activity or lesson, they can select their own activity from the shelves to complete independently until it is time to move on. This approach to self-initiation and independent play and learning serves Buckhead Prep graduates well when they move on to more rigorous learning environments.
There are designated spaces for art, music, and reading, and the new location offers space for the program to grow. The children get outdoor time every day (weather permitting) by utilizing the public spaces around the city center (the Veterans Memorial lawn, the train playground, the green space in front of the community center, and the duck pond and trails). Safety is paramount, and the children are escorted by teachers and an off-duty policeman/security officer to keep an eye on everyone as they explore.
Impressively, Buckhead Prep students had a 100% acceptance rate into private schools last year. And not only do they receive accolades from current and past parents, but they’ve received positive feedback from local and international schools concerning how well-prepared Buckhead Prep graduates are.
Buckhead Prep is currently enrolling for the fall. If you’d like to learn more about the school, or schedule a visit, please call Vanessa Starling, Director of Admissions at 404-846-2622.
