We have been informed that a new charter school was approved by the DeKalb school board last year and is scheduled to open in August. The school, DeKalb Preparatory Academy, will open at first for K-4 and will add a grade a year to eventually serve K-8. They are currently accepting applications, which can be downloaded from their website.
The school will use the Paragon curriculum from Mosaica. They have a solid, qualified, small board of directors in place and a corporate curriculum leadership plan. Below is the description from their website:
Mosaica Education’s Paragon© Curriculum combines the rigor of classical education with the relevance required by contemporary society. Students learn about character, ethics, empathy and self-esteem implicitly by studying the world’s great heroes, both canonical and unsung, and by stepping into the shoes of great historical figures, both real and imaginary. Paragon looks to the past to prepare students to become the architects of tomorrow.
The school will be housed at the recently closed Glen Haven Elementary School at 1402 Austin Drive, Decatur, GA 30032.
