The Academy for Classical Education - where teachers can teach, and students will learn!  ~ 2020 National Blue Ribbon School


UPDATE:  The 2022-2023 lottery ran February 16.  Parents may still complete an application .  However, at this point, all applicants are placed at the bottom of the waitlist.

The Academy for Classical Education is a state approved public charter school, authorized by the Georgia Charter Schools Commission.  Students residing in any county located in Georgia are eligible to attend. However, ACE does not provide transportation.


The pre-admission application will be available on the ACE website from January 1 - 30, 2022.  This application does not guarantee enrollment, but rather includes the child’s name in the lottery.  The pre-admission application will close at midnight on January 31, 2022. Individuals who do not have access to a computer may call 478-238-5757 to make an appointment to use a school computer. 


Applications will be accepted for all grade levels and the lottery will run for all grades.  Please note however, that Kindergarten is the only grade where we will have seats to fill. All other grade levels are full at this time but applicants for grades 1 – 12 will be added to the waitlist in the order determined by lottery. The waitlist is used in the event a student withdraws and a seat needs to be filled.


BEFORE submitting an application, please make sure you read through the information below to have a better understanding of ACE’s curriculum/culture.
