The Ron Clark Academy is a non-profit middle school, housed in a renovated red brick warehouse located in southeast Atlanta – but this is not your Daddy’s schoolhouse! The students represent various socio-economic and academic backgrounds and communities from across the metro region. The Academy is a demonstration school, engaging visiting educators from across the world in a vibrant professional development experience.

You will see classrooms often transformed into a beach, Mt. Olympus, a poetry coffeehouse or a mountain retreat. Students have experienced thunderstorms, an Italian restaurant, a hospital emergency room, a colonial village, and life on a fictitious planet without ever leaving the classroom! While required curriculum reinforces academic rigor, learning is an adventure at the Ron Clark Academy. They are fostering students who will become global leaders and teaching them about the world by Kim Bearden – Ron Clark Academy co-founder, executive director and language arts teacher – is an award-winning educator of almost thirty years and will lead the tour through the Ron Clark Academy. Her unique combination of innovation, discipline, and creativity ensures that every student is engaged in the learning process!
