Amana Academy

About the organization

Amana Academy is a K-8 tuition-free public charter school open to all students who are eligible to attend Fulton County Schools. Considered among the most well-regarded charter schools in the state of Georgia, Amana Academy’s Alpharetta campus was established in 2005 and authorized by the Georgia Department of Education and the Fulton County Schools system.

Amana chose the Harvard-based EL Education (Expeditionary Learning) model* because of its equal emphasis on academic achievement and character education. With high standardized test scores, an integrated STEM curriculum, a focus on stewardship and ethical character, and Arabic world-language instruction across all grade levels, Amana is a success story in the world of whole-child education.

As Amana Academy expands and opens a second campus​​​​​​​ in West Atlanta, it continues to thrive as a network of STEM-themed EL Education charter schools inspired by the successful track record at our flagship school in Alpharetta.
