This builds both self-confidence and problem-solving ability, as students use content in authentic ways. The teachers at Canopy help students connect their hearts to their minds, so that learning is a joyful journey.”
– Ann Scott Hanks: Principal, City Academy of Atlanta

– Dr. Sara Musgrove, Leaders Lyceum

“ I thank God that (my child) joined this school. She has learned a lot about God, how to live well with others, and has gained a lot of confidence”
