Global Impact Academy (opening in August 2021)
Background of Project
Global Impact Academy is positioned to be a world-class magnet high school that provides students the opportunity to study high-tech, high-demand courses that are college- and career-focused. Hallmarks of the school include an integrated curriculum with a focus on STEM education and an emphasis on design thinking. Design thinking is a problem-solving process that combines creative and analytical approaches that require the integration of knowledge and skills across multiple disciplines. Students will be supported through robust advisory programs that ensure every student has a guidance counselor, faculty advisor, and corporate mentor.
Partnerships, such as those with Georgia Tech’s Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics and Computing (CEISMC), will enhance the curriculum, and there will be extensive opportunities to engage with corporate, community, and higher education partners through projects, presentations, and internships. Global Impacy Academy is being built adjacent to Campbell Elementary School in Fairburn and will open in August 2021.
