About Us

Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Intown Community School! We are a unique, independent, Christian school that has been educating children since 1987 in ways that recognize that all of life and learning is accomplished within the broader context of God’s Truth.

Intown exists as an educational alternative that stands apart. We believe parents are the primary educators of their children, and it is our calling to come alongside you in raising life-long learners. Our philosophy, practices, and operations are based on this truth. We are successful when we are partners working together toward the same ends with children.

Prayerfully review the resources we have made available to you here, and give us a call to discuss next steps if our educational and philosophical goals are compatible with your parenting. We would love you to visit our beautiful campus, meet our staff, and observe our inspirational classes in action. We hope to meet you soon and share our passion with you!

In His service and yours,

Our Story

Intown Community School began in the fall of 1987 when a small group of Christian educators and parents had a big vision to begin a covenant school inside the perimeter of Atlanta. They had no headmaster and no building, but they did have a dependence on God. His provision came from places where they had no influence, so Intown Community School is clearly God’s work. The first class consisted of twelve students in first, second, and third grades. Although the school began as a ministry of Intown Community Church, it now encompasses more than fifty Atlanta area churches united in the desire to be a life-long learning community that emphasizes ideas over information.

Since 2005, our current Head of School, Pam Stegall, has provided sustaining visionary leadership that has taken our school to new levels of growth–now more than 230 students. In 2013, Intown Community School became a separate 501(c)3 from Intown Community Church. The school has an ongoing long-term lease for our beautiful facility and grounds on Lavista Road inside the Atlanta perimeter, and continues in the policy governance Board model. Intown Community School is a member of ChildLight Schools providing a Charlotte Mason education to thousands of children around the US and beyond.

Current families travel from many Atlanta area zip codes to gain an Intown Community School education to prepare their children for success in their further studies and in life. All glory to God for the blessing that Intown Community School has been in the lives of hundreds of families.

What We Believe

About God

We believe in the inspiration and inerrancy of the 66 books making up the Holy Scriptures.
We believe in the majesty and sovereignty of God.
We believe that God created the universe out of nothing.
We believe that God created human beings in His image.
We believe that at the fall this image was broken, resulting in man’s total depravity.
We believe in God’s gracious plan of redemption, as described in the Scriptures.
We believe that God applies the salvation earned by Jesus Christ to man through the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Reformed view of Christianity known as “Covenant Theology.”
We believe in the priority of the church and the necessity of local church membership by believers.
We believe in a final judgment of man by God leading to heaven or hell.
We believe that in doctrinal issues there must be unity in the essentials and love in the non-essentials.

These are the Doctrinal Standards of the Covenant School. The above beliefs are foundational to the operation of Intown Community School. While school families do not need to concur with all of the details of these doctrinal standards, it is important that they understand importance of these beliefs.

About Families

God has given parents the primary responsibility for the education of their children.

About Children

Children are born persons who deserve answers to their profound and legitimate questions about every area of life.

About the School Environment

We believe that the school is to function as an extension of the Christian home. Since children are spiritual beings all day long, our covenant setting offers consistency between home and school.
