School reimagined.

Creativity is, at its heart, producing new and original ideas that have value.

We're changing the way students engage in the classroom. Whether it’s making a prototype of a new invention, developing innovative ideas to reduce waste in the cafeteria, or launching a recording label featuring age appropriate music for tweens, our students creatively transfer their knowledge to solve problems and fulfill needs in their community.

We give them more than just pencil and paper.

Our students are exploring technology, design, and storytelling to fuel their imaginations. From coding a video game about the founding of Georgia, to designing an aquaponics garden to feed their community, they use the tools needed to be innovators today…..and tomorrow.

Our students are inventors, dreamers, innovators, communicators, and thinkers. Explore their perspectives of the Community for Creativity experience:

Our schools may differ in their curriculum focus and instructional approaches, but our search to embrace student voice and choice is what unites us in the Community for Creativity. We believe that our students can make a difference in their communities, now. We work with industry leaders, nonprofits, and education partners to find ways our students can lead and contribute as future ready, productive citizens.

Join us in building a Community for Creativity.
