Our school is refreshingly unique in its class offerings, thoroughly classical in its approach to learning, and intentionally focused on the cultivation of virtue in our students. The Stonehaven School currently enrolls students in kindergarten through eleventh grade, with our inaugural senior class graduating in spring of 2024. The Stonehaven School strives to be the premier classical Christian school in the Metro Atlanta area with a reputation for Christian virtue and academic excellence.

  • We believe that true education recognizes that hearts and minds are shaped not only by ideas and knowledge, but also by practices, habits, routines, and liturgies.
  • We seek to assist parents in their God-given task of educating their children in the Lord.
  • We believe parents should actively participate in the life and community of the school.

The Stonehaven School is a non-profit 501(c)(3), non-denominational, classical Christian school, accredited through the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS) and a member of the Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS).
