Cobb Preparatory Academy, a proposed charter school to be located in Smyrna/Cobb County, will offer a statewide attendance zone to better serve the educational needs of Georgia's families.
The mission of Cobb Preparatory Academy is to provide a safe learning environment where every student is challenged to reach his or her full potential. Cobb Preparatory Academy strives for academic excellence and a school culture with positive morale by providing a research-based and rigorous curriculum. Cobb Preparatory Academy will teach children the value of lifelong learning as well as the importance of contributing to society and community in positive ways.
Unlike a traditional school attendance zone where student options are defined by zip codes and geography, Cobb Preparatory Academy, as a statewide charter school, will be open to ALL eligible public school students in Georgia. All students will be given equitable access and opportunity to enroll in the Cobb Preparatory Academy and it is the school’s objective to reach students representative of the racial and socioeconomic diversity of the state.
To ensure the effort is successful, we need to demonstrate need, demand, and input. Please take a moment to visit our website and complete our survey AND support petition at www.cobbprepacademy.com.
