Happy New Year and Welcome to 2018! Pride School Atlanta is happy to announce its relocation to the new Education Center! We are now located at 3125 Presidential Parkway, Doraville, 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 personal touch of home schooling combined with the quality education we can provide through our standards based courses makes this the optimal business model for our students. Part time is also more affordable for the students that come to us, and we are trying to keep our costs to them as low as possible. We still provide a safe space for them to get a quality education – a space free of judgment and phobias. Students explore their talent, make friends, and be themselves. We are very excited to move into Spring Term 2018 in our new space!!

Additionally, now that we have a dedicated space, we are exploring options for telecommuting students – students that can come to class via the internet when driving is not a possibility. With most of the population that wants our services being scattered across Atlanta, across Georgia, and across the nation, we are looking at new ways of expanding our reach without students having to leave home.

Our new classes may include GED studies and evening courses, as well. If you have an idea for a course that you would like to see offered, please send us an email! We are happy to consider your ideas!
