Atlanta Youth Academy is proud to offer a purposeful and transformational program that aims to build well-rounded students of the highest character who can confidently walk through any door of opportunity that may be opened for them.

Since the day our doors opened in 1997, AYA has been focused on inspiring students to boldly serve the Lord and to strive to make a difference in their community and in the world.

One of the ways this intention is made manifest is in the Honor Code which is prominently displayed in every classroom and creates overarching spirit of honesty and integrity: “On my honor, as an Atlanta Youth Academy student, I pledge that I have neither given nor received improper assistance in completion of any assignment.”
