After three years at Chestatee, students will have chosen up to six different academies.
By successfully completing these academies and fulfilling other requirements, students may leave Chestatee with certification in one of the our three paths.
And with outstanding achievment, students may earn Badges of Distinction.
Our students develop their passions for
Arts & Culture,
Health & Wellness.
Our academies help to make Chestatee unique
We offer 40 different academies that cover a wide range of interests from robotics and website design to crime scene investigation, soccer, baking and jazz band.
For 45 minutes, twice a week, students get to explore their passions and create products to share with the world.
We offer two sessions, one in the spring and one in the fall. For each session, students submit a list of the five academies they would most like to join. Each student will be assigned to one of his or her top choices.
(To learn more about our academies, click on the Academies tab in the menu bar.)
At the end of each session, students present their products at our Day at the Museum. The best of these products are displayed at the Academy Showcase.
(For more information, click on Showcase on the menu bar.)
But that's not all!
