The Atlanta Country Day School’s origins date back to 1977 when Riverside Learning Lab, Atlanta’s premier supplemental educational service, was established. In 1986 The Academy High School at Riverside Learning Lab, a college preparatory day academy, became part of its program. In July 1996, the day school, now known as Atlanta Country Day School, expanded and moved to a suburban campus. After relocating to Alpharetta in August 2001, the school returned to the Dunwoody/Sandy Springs area in August 2003 and implemented a modified, four day per week schedule designed to maximize instructional time.
Atlanta Country Day School maintains a 6:1 or smaller student-teacher ratio. The faculty consists of experienced educators who possess either bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degrees in their subject areas. Selected for their knowledge of subject matter, their desire to teach and motivate students, and their willingness to advise and develop co-curricular activities, the faculty serves as positive academic and personal role models.
