The Stonehaven School begins a year-long celebration of its twentieth anniversary, and will culminate the 2023-2024 school year with the first senior class graduation since the launch of its Upper School in 2020.
“We look back on the first twenty years of our school’s journey with joy and gratitude for God’s gracious blessings,” said Brett Edwards, Stonehaven’s Head of School. “The sacrifice, energy, and devotion of so many teachers, students, and families has helped Stonehaven develop an academic program committed to cultivating truth, goodness, and beauty in our students.”
Stonehaven began as Atlanta Classical Christian Academy in Smyrna in 2004. After leasing spaces from churches in Smyrna and Marietta, the school purchased two properties in the Fair Oaks community, where the Lower and Upper School campuses meet today. The long-term goal is to join both campuses together on one property.
When a group of 5th grade students met with administrators several years ago to request that the K-8 school launch a high school, no one foresaw that this class would graduate as seniors in the school’s 20th year. Now as both accomplishments are realized in the same year, Stonehaven has much to celebrate and a rich legacy to honor.
Kathryn Jackson, Upper School Dean of Academics, reflects: “The Stonehaven School is thriving today by the grace of God. Over the last ten years, we have seen student enrollment triple. Three years ago, Stonehaven launched its high school program with a pioneering group of 9th grade students and families. It is with much joy that not only are we celebrating the 20th anniversary of our school but also our first graduating senior class! We look to the future with hope and expectation as God continues to build our school community.”
