Utopian Academy, the state’s first public charter school for the arts, is enrolling new scholars for the 2016-17 academic year. Nearly 100 seats will be open to students within the boundaries of Clayton County Schools. A series of Open House celebrations will be held at 6 p.m. on March 17 and March 30 to invite new families to tour the school. The celebration will include a talk from administrators and information about the school’s academic program.

Parents can also talk to Utopian Academy scholars about their experiences.“Utopian Academy for the Arts is an awesome place to get an education,” said Ms. Yvette Gates, Utopian Academy’s Title Program Coordinator and Parent Liaison. Gates also has an eighth grader at Utopian.“It has a small family-like environment and a challenging curriculum that allows students to explore their interests.

”Utopian Academy has a rigorous academic curriculum that challenges scholars to express their creative talents through the arts. Scholars can take classes in dance, visual arts, music, culinary arts, broadcasting, and editing as they tackle core classes.Students use their creativity to demonstrate subject mastery.At Utopian, book reports are expressed as short films and essays are written as movie scripts.

The school also has a student-run Internet radio and television station.“I love it here,” said Brittani Gates, 13. “You get the attention that you need, and you are also able to stimulate your talents. I have taken visual arts, dance, audio-visual and culinary arts classes. I enjoyed all of them.”Returning students and their siblings will be given enrollment priority.
