Be Part of Something Unique.
Founded by award-winning educator, innovator and Harvard PhD, Dr. Gavin Samms, Genesis Innovation Academy is a free public charter school in Southeast Atlanta. This year, there's a unique opportunity to be part of our inaugural high school class. At Genesis, you'll receive personalized attention in an environment where all the adults and scholars know one another and are invested in each others’ success.
Access over 30 AP courses and receive college credit as early as 9th grade. Discover and lean into your gifts and passions. Join our basketball team, cheerleading squad, robotics team or moot court. Start a business, become a leader in social justice, start a new organization on campus. You'll have the opportunity to have a full, rich high school experience while becoming a young adult prepared for life after high school -- learning everything from how to balance your personal budget to how to give yourself as many options for college or whatever's next for you.
The possibilities are endless. Genesis: Greatness Begins Here.
Start Your Own Business
Beginning in 9th grade, our high schoolers develop plans to start their own businesses, from writing business plans to creating pitches for our Pitch Night in the spring.
How We Teach
Recieve Personalized Mentoring
Character and work ethic are the strongest predictors of success. Our classrooms are small on purpose, so all of our scholars receive individualized attention.
Tap Into Your Passions
You don't just have to be one thing. You can be an athlete and a writer, captain of the basketball team and a math club champ. Leadership opportunities are abundant and we encourage scholars to become involved and start their own organizations.
Meet Our High School Faculty
Our faculty are leaders, experts and innovators in their areas of instruction. They're passionate about what they teach. Through our hands-on, project-based curriculum model, faculty serve as guides and facilitators as scholars learn and discover their passions.
