Eaton Academy provides the caring educators, customized curriculum, safe environment, and positive experiences that enable individuals to thrive. Students obtain the quality education, sense of independence, and important life skills they need to successfully transition to adulthood.
Established in 1995, Eaton Academy designs education solutions in a K-12 academic environment devoted to meeting students’ individual needs. Eaton has programs designed for students seeking a traditional college preparatory experience and for those whose needs are more specialized.
The 5:1 overall student-to-teacher ratio allows instructors to address students’ personal learning styles. Through the use of technology, multisensory instruction, and a wide variety of curricular resources, students achieve significant academic and personal success. This approach to academics is well-suited to students who want an accelerated program and to those who need a more remedial environment.
The personalized environment can benefit individuals with particular social and scholastic needs. Those with school anxiety, autism, and other specific special needs are able to achieve significant progress in Eaton’s positive, comforting programs.
Eaton Academy serves students who benefit from a more customized model of education, designed to meet their personal needs.
We are accredited by Cognia (formerly known as AdvancED) and the Georgia Accrediting Commission (GAC). Additionally, we are members of GISA, AAAIS, GAPSEC, and NAPSEC.
Total enrollment varies between 130 and 150 students. The enrollment in our K-8 and high school programs ranges between 55 and 60 students. Our Independent Study Program (ISP) serves more than 100 students annually.
Eaton Academy features a rigorous and academically challenging college prep curriculum. Programs are customized appropriately to meet the students’ individual needs while maintaining the academic integrity and rigor of the material. Our courses are designed so that students may realize their specific education objectives. To meet the individual needs of our learners, we focus on the:
- identification of learning styles
- use of state-of-the-art resources and technology
- implementation of STEAM-oriented activities and strategies
We offer group class programs for elementary, middle school, and high school students. These programs meet Monday through Friday for 180 days each academic year. They offer a 5:1 overall student-to-teacher ratio, and the multisensory instruction incorporates technology and study skills. Some students may choose to enroll in our Mentor or PACE programs. These programs offer a slightly smaller ratio and allow students to have a more individualized curriculum while remaining in a group setting. The Independent Study Program (ISP) features one-to-one instruction on a schedule designed for each student. In ISP students take the college prep courses they need to graduate with as much or as little tutorial support as they desire. Lastly, we also offer a group Summer School. Students elect to attend either one or both of the three-week sessions, which meet Monday through Friday from 9:00 to 1:00 in June and July.
