Burgess-Peterson Academy is one of the schools to watch in the coming months ahead. As we evolve into one of the highest performing elementary schools in the Atlanta Public School System, we have a rich heritage and legacy to be proud of.  Located in the Southeast corridor of the East Atlanta Community, Burgess-Peterson Academy currently serves approximately 260 students in grades pre-kindergarten through fifth grades. Our goal is to ensure that we provide students with hands-on and inquiry based teaching which will allow them an opportunity to continue to think critically and analytically for real-world application.  Over 80% of the faculty/staff hold advanced degrees in the field of education and we believe in life-long learning. Burgess-Peterson Academy is a premier learning site where our teachers uphold and embrace the S.O.A.R. model of excellence:

Standards are what we will teach every day at every grade level.


Our jobs are to teach children as we would want our own children taught.


Assessments and intensive data-monitoring will drive all of our decisions.


Rigorous and real-life instruction is the norm at Burgess-Peterson Academy.


As we S.O.A.R. to new heights of excellence for student achievement, we all embrace high expectations for all of our students to exceed standards, embrace diversity, and to excel in academics. The Burgess-Peterson Academy family seeks to nurture our children and provide the necessary support needed to learn at very high level.


Teamwork…values…high expectations, all the while improving student success!

  • Infinite Campus Parent and Student Portal

    CPP Login Page:

    Parents of students in grades K–12 have access to class schedules, attendance records and grades by Campus Portal for Parents (CPP) which is an easy-to-use, secure communications tool. Additionally, CPP enables parents to verify household information, including their email address, home address and telephone numbers.
    Contact your child’s school to get your CPP activation key. Parents are required to  request the CPP activation key in person. To ensure that all student information remains secure, parents must provide a valid photo ID (driver’s license, state ID card, or passport) before receiving the CPP activation key.  Once parents receive the activation key, they can visit to create a unique username and password.

  • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and students who are 18 years of age or older ("eligible students") certain rights with respect to the student's education records.  These rights include the right to provide written consent before the school discloses personally identifiable information (PII) from the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without con­sent.

    One exception which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests.  A school official is a person employed by the school as an ad­ministrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel) or a person serving on the school board.  A school official also may include a volunteer or contractor outside of the school who performs an institutional service of function for which the school would otherwise use its own employees and who is under the direct control of the school with respect to the use and maintenance of PII from education records, such as an attorney, audi­tor, medical consultant, or therapist; a parent or student volunteering to serve on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee; or a parent, student, or other volunteer assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.  A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an educa­tion record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.

    Also, upon request, the school discloses education records without consent to officials of another school district in which a student seeks or intends to enroll, or is already enrolled if the disclosure is for purposes of the student’s enrollment or transfer. 

    For more information about Student Records and disclosures, including directory information, please refer to the Student Handbook, and Board Policy JR and Administrative Regulation JR-1(R).
