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.

Welcome to Intown Community School! About 16 years ago, I found myself visiting Christian schools in my area, feeling strongly convicted that I needed something more for my sons than they were receiving from their local school. As parents, my husband and I needed a village of like-minded families who shared common values and had similar priorities to ours. As children, my three boys needed to be academically challenged, but more importantly, they needed to be surrounded by people who loved them for who they were and built them up to be the men God intended them to be. If you find yourself searching for the same kind of balance, I'm pleased to welcome you to the Intown community.

I've been involved in Christian education for almost two decades now as a parent, teacher, and administrator, and I bring everything back to one essential question: am I doing everything I can for the students in my care to instill a love of learning and bring them into a closer relationship with God? Being focused on that mission is my life's calling, and I am both humbled and honored to work alongside the amazing faculty and wonderful families of Intown Community School to bring that mission forward each and every day.  I’ve seen the impact having a solid foundation, rooted in His word, has on our children. Having a strong connection between home and school is an essential component of a successful school experience, and one of the key things that brought me to Intown is the Charlotte Mason philosophy, which relies heavily on that partnership.  

As many schools recover the learning loss experienced by prolonged virtual learning during COVID, the students at Intown Community School continue to thrive.  Having been safely in school for on-campus learning for the last two years, our students and families have remained connected – not only to each other, but also to God’s Word, as a community.  There are so many outside forces competing for the attention of our children today, and almost all of them take their focus off God. If you are looking for a school experience that will challenge your child academically, nurture him socially, and fulfill him spiritually, I encourage you to read through this information and contact us to set up a time to join us on campus for a personal tour. The faculty and staff of Intown Community School would love to show you the difference a Biblically integrated school experience, centered on the word of God, can make to your family.

In His name,

Lisa Kelly, Head of School

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 forty 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 about 215 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, an association of 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. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

We believe the Bible is God’s infallible and authoritative Word to man. It is the only standard by which faith and practice are to be measured. Deuteronomy 4:2, Psalm 1:1-2, Psalm 19:7

We believe in the majesty and sovereignty of God. 1 Chronicles 29:11, Romans 8:28, Ephesians 1:11, 2 Peter 1:16-17

We believe that God created the universe out of nothing. Genesis 1:1, Genesis 1:31

We believe that God created man in His image. Genesis 1:27

We believe that at the fall this image was broken, resulting in man’s total depravity. He is thus alienated from God, his neighbor and the world. All are sinners. Genesis 3, Jeremiah 17:9, Romans 3:23

We believe in God’s gracious plan of redemption, as described in the scriptures. Romans 3:24-25, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 1:7-10

We believe Jesus Christ is the only Savior of sinners, the only way to the Father. He died as a substitute for sinners and was raised from the dead so that they might be reconciled to God. John 14.6, Romans 5:6, Romans 6:8-11

We believe eternal life is a free gift that is received through faith in Jesus alone. Eternal life is neither deserved by anyone, nor can it be earned by good deeds. Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-10

We believe that God applies the salvation earned by Jesus Christ to man through the Holy Spirit. John 16:13-14, Romans 8:15-16

We believe in the Reformed view of Christianity known as “Covenant Theology.” Exodus 34:5-7, Romans 5:12-21, 2 Corinthians 1:19-20

We believe in the priority of the church and the necessity of local church membership by believers. Acts 2:42, 1 Corinthians 12:12, Ephesians 1:22-23, Hebrews 10:24-25

We believe in a final judgment of man by God leading to heaven or hell. Matthew 8:10-12, Matthew 25:46, John 5:21-13

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.
