About Fugees Academy
The Fugees Academy is an independent, community-based middle and high school emphasizing academic and character development of refugee children. Our student body represents 22 different countries, including Burundi, Iraq, African Central Republic and Burma. The school is in its eighth year, and is SAIS and SACS accredited. It blends creative teaching with academic fundamentals, interwoven with leadership and character building. The Fugees Academy packs a normal K-8 education into three years of middle school so that students are then ready for a college preparatory curriculum in high school.
The Fugees Academy serves a pressing need that is not currently being met by Georgia’s traditional public education system – the education of refugee children in an environment where their unique academic challenges are understood. Through small classes, high expectations, and targeted instruction, Fugees Academy empowers the most vulnerable of students–child survivors of war—to become independent thinkers and high-achieving scholars. Working as a team both on and off the field, members of the Fugees Academy community strive to support each other while working to achieve individual goals. ...We believe that this team mind-set nurtures and prepares young adults who will be the next generation of international and community leaders.
