Chatham Academy was established in 1978 to address the academic and social needs of children with learning differences. Students work in an individualized, small group setting where the curriculum provides opportunities for each child to be challenged and to excel.
Chatham Academy is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SAIS/SACS) and is an integral part of Royce Learning Center. At Chatham, we teach students with learning differences (ADHD, Dyslexia and similar learning differences.) Our curriculum is sanctioned by SAIS/SACS and award a traditional high school diploma. Our students are grouped by age and skill level, so they can learn at their own pace. We help each student overcome his/her individual area of frustration in school by maintaining a 10-1 student-teacher ratio. Art and physical education are a part of the weekly schedule. Student are able to participate in extra-curricular sports and activities such as: soccer, flag football, basketball, cheerleading, and baseball. Chatham Academy is funded through tuition and donations. Limited financial aid is available to qualified families who apply. We also accept the Georgia Special Needs Scholarship.
