We are now located at 3125 Presidential Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340 in Suite 335. With this move brings a new business model. We are now operating as a homeschool resource and tutoring center. Why the change? Most of the students that we serve left the public school system for various reasons including bullying and anxiety. They have been in a home school environment and come to us on a part time basis.

The School

Pride School Atlanta is a tuition-based private non-profit school for students ages 9-18. It is founded on a modified Democratic Free School model. It operates M-F from 8:00–3:30, and offers both full time and part time enrollment. We believe students and people are uniquely gifted, whole and complete. We strive to give each student the opportunity to find themselves, discover their talents, develop their gifts, and pave the road to their future. We do this in an environment that is safe and accepting of ALL students regardless of their shape, size, or identity.

The Organization

The organization works both inside and outside of the school to promote both the mission and the vision. We believe that by connecting with community to educate others on our similarities and differences both within and without the LGBTQQIAA communities that we can strengthen our bonds in the larger community and society in which we live and work daily.

We advocate and connect to community members and organizations to set new standards in education including and most importantly acceptance for all people regardless of their gender identity - conforming and non-conforming - sexual orientation and preference, race, color, creed, nationality, heritage, marital or relationship status – basically, humans are humans and there should not be anything that separates us from each other.
