FSA's Story

Our Story

Fulton Science Academy was established in 2002 as a charter middle school. After 10 very successful years as one of the highest performing schools in Fulton County and earning the distinction as a National Blue Ribbon School, the school founders made the decision to transition to a private school to provide greater autonomy to the administrative team. 

Opening as Fulton Science Academy Private School in 2012, the school began focusing on providing rigorous and innovative STEAM education to advanced and gifted students in Pre-K through 8th grade. Doubling its enrollment every year, the school quickly outgrew the converted warehouse and built a 67,000 square foot state of the art school on an 18-acre campus.  Opening for the 2015-16 school year, these new facilities enabled the school to begin offering classes to high school students.  The school celebrated its first graduating class in 2019.

As Fulton Science Academy’s reputation has grown, so has its student body causing the school to embark on a 37,000 square foot addition with 35 new classrooms that will open for the 2020-21 school year. Long known for its high-performing, nationally-ranked Academic Teams (Math Olympiad, Robotics, Science Olympiad, and Model UN), Fulton Science Academy is now developing its Athletics and Fine Arts programs.
