Who We Are...
Established in 2005 and authorized by the Georgia Department of Education and the Fulton County Schools system, Amana Academy is among the most well regarded charter public schools in the state of Georgia. The school is incorporated as a non-profit charter school, and it is located 30 minutes north of Atlanta in the city of Alpharetta, Georgia adjacent to beautiful Wills Park.
A wonderful characteristic of start-up charter schools like Amana is that they are usually founded on a central core-principle. Amana's foundational principles are best represented in the broad concepts of stewardship and responsibility. These principles, woven into all aspects of the school's vision and mission, led organizers to choose the Arabic word Amana for the school's nameplate, because it conveyed the pervasive sense of ''a trust that must be nurtured and guarded''.
Amana envisions its graduates possessing a healthy balance of intellect and ethical character - with a positive self-image who are motivated for lifelong learning and achievement, who respect others and the environment and who can skillfully communicate their interests.
