Recently named the most diverse high school in Atlanta, ranked as the fifth best private school overall in Georgia by Niche.com, and named Best K-12 Private School in North Atlanta by Appen Media, Fulton Science Academy Private School (FSAPS) offers Georgia students a transformative education. FSAPS serves a high population of advanced and gifted students in Pre-K through High School. As an accredited and STEM certified school, FSA has a reputation for its exceptional academic results. FSAPS ranks in the top 1% among all subjects and all grades in nationally normed tests in comparison to other schools in the nation and enjoys a 97% AP exam passing rate among the high school student body. After a very successful competition season at the state level, FSAPS represented Georgia in twelve different national and/or global events last year.
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 opened for the 2020-21 school year.
Fulton Science Academy Private School (FSAPS) provides its students with opportunities to grow, learn, and play in an environment conducive to fostering academic growth. Our approach to learning focuses on using hands-on, collaborative, and engaging instructional practices to prepare students for life beyond FSAPS. FSAPS’s environment is structured to minimize distractions and stress, while cultivating strong work ethic, self-initiative, strength of character, and well-developed social skills.
The school considers development of the whole student as important as academics. For a creative outlet, students take part in art, music, engineering, and computer classes every week. Many other enrichment opportunities are offered, including free after-school clubs, band, orchestra, top performing academic teams, and athletics to develop students’ social skills. FSAPS is also proud to have some of Georgia’s strongest academic teams.
FSAPS offers a daily Social Emotional Learning program, which is facilitated by our Counseling Team and executed by classroom teachers. This curriculum teaches students how to develop the skills necessary for constructive and compassionate interactions with others, and the lessons are an integral part of every school day. Additionally, the high school program includes daily College Preparation Time, helping the students achieve their dreams.
FSAPS has fostered a “yearn to learn” culture where students embrace an innovative, STEAM curriculum. The FSAPS student body is diverse and reflects award-winning academic teams, competitive athletes, personal entrepreneurs, and award-winning critical thinkers. Built upon the core values of integrity, curiosity, advocacy, resiliency, and empathy, FSAPS has engineered a school of tomorrow, today.
