Communities in Schools - Our Partner Offering Support and Ensuring Success

What is Phoenix Academy All About?


    At Phoenix Academy, faculty, staff, and community stakeholders are here to serve the WHOLE student (individual). We know that each student comes to us with their own set of unique experiences and obstacles incurred on their academic journey. However, we work hard to "change the narrative" with the student and chart a new course towards success. Specifically towards high school graduation.  We are here to support, engage, challenge, and nurture each student to become the best version of themselves that they can be. Come join the Phoenix Family and, as a new phoenix, rise up to the challenge!!

When the Village Supports the Whole Child...

  • School Education Partners: Phoenix Academy & Upward Bound, A Federal Funded program geared to helping students graduate high school and attend a four-year or two-year college/technical program




    Upward Bound provides the following support for our students:  College Exposure and Preparation, Individual and Academic Advisement and Support, and Career Development.  If this is of interest to you and you are embarking on your journey here with us at Phoenix Academy, contact Ms. Mullins and Ms. Bush upon entering our program.  

APS is Committed to Serving the Whole Child...

  • UnivScreener


    Atlanta Public Schools is committed to creating a culture of student support, and supporting the needs of the whole child. One way we are addressing the whole child is by identifying student strengths and areas for growth relative to social, emotional, and behavioral well-being. In our continuing efforts to support the well-being of all students, we will be administering a universal screener of social, emotional & behavioral health. The assessment consists of a brief rating scale that will be completed by the homeroom or advisement teachers to aid in identifying students who may be at risk to develop academic or other school-related concerns. In addition, students ages 8 and above (3rd – 12th grade) will be invited to complete a self-rating that will take 5 – 15 minutes to complete. We acknowledge the importance of parent input into this screening process, therefore parents of students grades Pk-12 will also be invited to complete a brief rating scale about their student(s). Together, this information helps us to understand the needs of all students, and to make effective plans to support those needs at the school, class, and individual levels.
