Peachtree Academy

Peachtree Academy is taking applications for the 2013-2014 school year. For information please stop by the front desk, or call 770-860-8900 Ext. 1001.


The new code for our entrance doors is 9853*. Please share this code with your authorized pick up and drop off persons so that they will have it when they enter the buildings. Please do not allow children to enter the code, or enter the building alone. They must be accompanied by an adult.

This next week we will be installing our new electronic key pads for the doors in the courtyard between the two buildings. This will alleviate the need to prop doors open.

Peachtree Academy Private School is holding its first Annual Event, “A Night at the Academy,” on April 20, 2013 at Peachtree Academy’s High School in Covington, GA. Highlights of the evening will include Live and Silent Auctions, a $5,000 Reverse Raffle drawing, prizes and dancing throughout the night. We are expecting several hundred supporters that include many business and community leaders, families and friends.

The money raised by this Gala will allow our school to build their robotics program and science labs, complete our football field, expand our Fine Arts program, and build our student scholarship fund. Our school has grown to serve Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade students and the demand for a great school continues to grow each year. We hope that you will save the date for April 20, 2013 and make plans to attend this exciting event. It will be a nice opportunity to meet other parents at our school and network with some wonderful people who appreciate Peachtree Academy and the impact it has on our community.

Peachtree Academy has been an integral part of the Rockdale and Newton County communities since it was founded in 2001 by Ken and JaNice Van Ness. Peachtree Academy is a significant and treasured institution in our community and in the lives of our students and families. As a school, we strive to keep our tuition reasonable so that the dream of a great education can be a reality for families in our community. As you may know, 93% of our operating budget is supported by parent tuition. The remainder of our budget is supplemented by fundraising and the support of our Partners in Education. In our effort to consolidate some of our fundraising efforts, we are announcing our first annual event to support our Capital Campaign.

The tickets can be sold to family and friends outside of the area and will now get a chance to win $5,000 with their donation of $100. On the sponsorship pages that are attached, we have outlined various ways you can choose to participate in our 2013 “A Night at the Academy”. We have given you a letter to address to friends, family, and community members who want to participate in the event and gain recognition for their businesses. Peachtree Academy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. We would be so grateful if you would consider making a donation of some kind, and/or purchasing a corporate table.

Thank you for taking this opportunity to advertise your business and for considering Peachtree Academy Private School as an investment in our future’s most valuable resource, our children. Your tax-deductible contribution will help the school achieve its goals for continued growth. If you have questions, please call 770-860-8900, ext. 1003 and ask for Patty Smith.
