Living In College Park, Georgia

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionSend by emailSend by email

Eleven miles to the south of downtown Atlanta is College Park, a city mostly in Fulton County, with a small portion spilling into Clayton County. This well established community enjoys elements of a rich past, and the recent offerings of world-class Atlanta. Some of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is located in the city. The Georgia International Convention Center is owned and operated by College Park.

 

College Park began community life as a land grant in 1846, and took the early name of "Manchester". However, an interesting twist in academic relocation eventually led to a name change. It went down like this - LaGrange Female Seminary, was founded in 1842 in nearby LaGrange, Georgia. The turmoil of the Civil War, Reconstruction and recession caused the institution to finally settle in Manchester in 1895. The wandering seminary named itself Cox College in 1896, and that same year, the town renamed itself College Park. Cox College sputtered for years and finally extinguished, closing its doors in 1934, ironically, leaving College Park without a college.

 

The community's collegiate past remains visible today, as the east-west streets are named after Ivy League Universities. And the Georgia Military Academy, founded in 1900 as an all-male institution, became the coeducational Woodward Academy in 1966. College Park's Woodward Academy today is the largest independent private school in the country, with 2,670 students from grades Pk-12, on two campuses.

 

College Park today revels in its historic past, enjoying and sharing its status as home to 867 structures on the National Historic Register. Once vacant downtown storefronts are being filled, as historic Main Street is undergoing rapid revitalization. The growth of the Airport, the reach of the light rail Marta system and the state-of-the-art Georgia International Convention Center all work together to bring hundreds of thousands of visitors to town.

 

THINGS TO SEE AND DO IN COLLEGE PARK

Exploring life in College Park is a good decision, and here are fun things to know:

 

*NAMESAKE - The city's name came from being the hometown of Cox College (where the city hall and other buildings now stand) and Georgia Military Academy (now the Woodward Academy). The east-west avenues in College Park are named for Ivy League colleges, and the north-south streets are named for influential College Park residents.

*COLLEGE PARK WOMAN'S CLUB - is located in Camellia Hall, on Main Street. One of the oldest such clubs in Georgia.

 

*GEORGIA INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION CENTER - Located in College Park, this city-owned and operated facility is the second largest convention center in the U.S. Only the Georgia World Congress Center, in nearby Atlanta, is larger.

Behind the Convention Center the new Atlanta Airport people mover called "ATL Skytrain", connects Airport patrons with the new rental car complex, four hotel accommodations, and excellent restaurants at the Gateway Center of the Georgia International Convention Center (GICC). The pride of College Park is the world's only convention center directly connected to a major airport; the modern facility embodies the grace and efficiency of flight itself.

 

*ART IS PART OF GEORGIA INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION CENTER- More than thirty-five commissioned works of art are featured throughout the building: from artists of international acclaim and local fame alike; and in varied media, from sculptures to mobiles and glasswork. Audio tours are available.

 

*HISTORIC DISTRICT - The Historic College Park District is Georgia's 4th largest urban Historic District. There are 606 acres and 853 properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior. This totally planned community was originally established in 1890 as the city of Manchester, a manufacturing town. 

 

*HISTORIC COLLEGE PARK ARTS FESTIVAL - Each September, the College Park Arts Festival draws thousands for a day of fun for the whole family! Featuring artwork by regional artists, food, children's activities, silent auctions, live music, and much more!The festival is from 10 AM-5 PM at Rugby Avenue and Main Street in front of Woodward Academy in Historic College Park.

*WOODWARD ACADEMY - Woodward Academy is a co-educational private school in College Park. "WA" is the largest independent school in the United States. Formerly Georgia Military Academy was founded in 1900 as a military boarding school for boys. In 1964, the school became co-educational. The military program was dropped from the curriculum in 1966 and the school name was changed to Woodward Academy. The boarding program was discontinued in 1993.

Today, there are about 2,670 students in grades PK-12 on two campuses: Woodward North in Johns Creek (PK-6 on 35 acres) and Main Campus in College Park (K-12 on 75 acres).

PUBLIC EDUCATION

To better help you select the best College Park school for your children, read what Fulton County Schools says on its website, http://portal.fultonschools.org

 

"Founded in 1871, the Fulton County School System is one of the oldest and largest school districts in Georgia. With a focus on student achievement and a commitment to continual improvement, Fulton has earned a reputation as a premier school system. This long history of excellence is evidenced by the many state and national honors bestowed on Fulton's schools, staff and students."

 

-FULTON COUNTY SCHOOLS website
 

TESTING

To understand the testing of public school students in Georgia, parents will need to know at least two terms:

EOCT- "End of Course Tests" are required at the end of each school year, grades 9-12. These tests are designed to measure student performance on the goals, objectives and competency measurements specified by Georgia. See www.doe.k12.ga.us

AYP- "Adequate Yearly Progress" is a measurement of how every public k-12 school and district in the country meets the No Child Left Behind standards. AYP “sets the bar” for school performance by groups of students, and schools and districts can either clear the bar or miss it. Districts need to meet every single performance target set for them. Targets are set for College Park student attendance, cohort graduation rates, and for student performance on the Georgia standardized tests in reading and mathematics.

CHARTER SCHOOLS IN GEORGIA
Georgia charter schools are independent public schools that exist to offer College Park students, parents and educators choices in teaching, learning methods and environments. An emphasis is placed on innovation and accountability with improved student achievement the common goal.

Charter schools provide parents a choice in the education of their children - and it is a public choice. Charter Schools are tuition free. Public tax dollars are the primary funding sources for charter schools. Local, state, and federal dollars follow the child to a charter school. The schools have open enrollment with no discrimination, no religious associations, and no tuition.

 

Parents must contact each individual charter school to see if they have openings. If charter schools have more applicants than available slots, an open lottery must be instituted to fill the remaining spots. For a list of Georgia charter schools and their locations, please visit the Georgia Department of Education at www.doe.k12.ga.us, or the Georgia Charter Schools Association: www.gachaters.org

 

Nationwide, there are now approximately 5,600 public charter schools in 41 states and the District of Columbia, educating more than 2 million public charter school students. Georgia public charter schools are intended to improve the state's traditional public school system. Presently, there are 177 charter schools in Georgia, serving over 72,000 students.

Any Georgia charter school, while independently operated, must meet four requirements, like any other state public school:
*Tuition-free and open to every student who wishes to enroll;
*Non-sectarian, and do not discriminate on any basis;
*Funded by local, state & federal tax dollars like other public schools;
*Held accountable to state and federal academic standards;
*Georgia charter schools must take the state mandated tests.

PRIVATE SCHOOLS IN COLLEGE PARK

Private schools, also known as independent schools or non-state schools, are independent, nonprofit schools with carefully defined missions, governed by boards of trustees, and supported by tuition payments, charitable contributions and endowment revenue. Private schools are not administered by College Park, or by Georgia, or by the Federal government; thus, they retain the right to select their students and are funded in whole or in part by charging their students tuition, rather than relying on public funding.

 

Many College Park students can qualify for financial aid to a private school, such as a sport scholarship, an art, or an academic scholarship. You can find more information about non-public, independent school accreditation in Georgia by consulting the Georgia Private School Accreditation Council: www.gapsac.org

 

HOMESCHOOLING IN GEORGIA

Georgia welcomes and helps parents who want to educate their children in a non-public school. The state has many resources to help parents and suggests the following approach in deciding on homeschooling as an education option in College Park:

First you need to decide if home education is the right choice for you and your family. It is never too early to start this step. To learn about homeschooling, talk to experienced homeschoolers, attend classes, and read. Reading is always a good way to learn about homeschooling. As you read, your philosophy of education will develop. You need to invest some time in reading good books on the subject.

Home school definitions and requirements vary by state, so it is a good idea to know the basics that apply in Georgia. The Georgia Department of Education publishes its requirements, among which are:

1. Parent or guardian must annually submit to the superintendent of the local school district a Declaration of Intent to Utilize a Home Study Program by September 1, or within 30 days after a program is established. The local school superintendent will provide a form upon request for this purpose to be returned to that office.

2. The Declaration must include the names and ages of the students, the address where the program is located, and the dates of the school year.

3. Parents or guardians may teach only their own children in the home study program, provided the teaching parent or guardian possesses at least a high school diploma or a general educational development (GED) equivalency diploma, but the parents or guardians may employ a tutor who holds at least a high school diploma or a general education diploma to teach such children.

3. The home study program must include, but is not limited to, instruction in reading, language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science.

4. The school year must include the equivalent of 180 days of at least four and 1/2 hours of instruction per day, unless the child is physically unable to comply with this requirement.

5. Monthly attendance reports must be sent to the local superintendent at the end of each month. The local school superintendent will, upon request, provide the reporting forms.

See: www.doe.k12.ga.us/External-Affairs-and-Policy, or The Georgia Home Education Association: www.ghea.org

 

CHILD CARE IN COLLEGE PARK

Currently, about 70% of parents place their young children in some type of daily care.  Identifying the best facility can be confusing, but the outcome is important. As a parent, it is your responsibility to ensure that your child is safe and happy in a child care environment that is fun, educational, and nurturing. Fortunately, significant help is available from both the federal government and from Georgia as well.

Federal law requires that states have policies in place to protect the health and safety of children in child care in three areas:
*the prevention and control of infectious diseases;
*the building and physical premise safety;
*health and safety training appropriate to the program setting.

Because these federal requirements are general, the standards that states set for licensing child care centers and family childcare homes vary greatly. The rules on who must obtain a license, what training they need to have, how many children they can care for, and what kind of environment they must provide differ state by state.

The Georgia Office of Residential Child Care monitors, inspects and licenses Child Caring Institutions, Child Placing Agencies, Outdoor Child Caring Programs, Children's transitional Care Centers and Maternity Homes. Learn more at http://orcc.dhs.georgia.gov/portal/site/DHS-ORCC
 

The Georgia Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies provide a wide array of services to families in our communities. Services consist of referrals and education to assist parents in their search for quality child care, parent education classes, newsletters, and community resources.

To find a licensed child care facility in the College Park, please contact: www.gaccrra.org / 877-255-5437
