Principal's Welcome

On behalf of all our fantastic students and staff, I welcome you to South Atlanta School of Computer Animation and Design (CAD). It is my honor and absolute pleasure to serve as Principal of such an innovative and dedicated school community committed to Excellence in Teaching and Learning. It is my desire to create a safe learning environment and foster rigorous and personalized educational experiences intentionally designed for each child. As one of the small themed-based high schools, we offer an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning, small class sizes, personalized advisory programs, peer-mentorships, interests based school clubs, visual and fine arts programs and athletics. These opportunities allow every student to explore their interests, build strong relationships with peers and caring adults within the building and become involved in and connect to the school community.   

Finally, as you virtually walk through the halls of CAD and see our school in action, we hope your experience will be exciting and informative. Again, welcome and thank you for your time and interest in our school community.

  • APS Statement Regarding Personnel Changes

    Atlanta Public Schools is appreciative of the leadership demonstrated by all of our principals, particularly those who have served the district for many years.  Like all school districts, APS conducts an annual assessment of where we are as a system, as well as a review of any revisions to state law. Necessary changes are made to ensure the district remains in compliance and that all of our students are prepared for the next level and long-term success. This process includes an intense and methodical performance review of all of our schools and their leadership teams. For the full statement, please click here.
