Atlanta Unbound Academy is founded on the belief that all students have the potential to be and do anything they want, and that it is a privilege for school leadership and staff to support them as they make their dreams become reality. AUA will make good on this belief by creating an academic program that prepares students for continued success in high school, and ultimately, to be competitive college applicants & graduates and leaders of their community.
The AUA academic program is the result of more than a decade of experience and research led by the school’s founder and principal. Through the lens of culturally relevant instruction, AUA will utilize the best practices of high-performing charter schools and models to focus on rigorous academics, critical thinking skills, and mastering the habits of mind that position and empower our students for competitive academic performance.
