About Perimeter School

Perimeter School is a unique K- 8 covenant Christian educational community in north Atlanta that has been partnering with churched families for over 30 years. At Perimeter School, we are compelled and excited to provide a broad and enriching curriculum and program – engaging both mind and heart. Creative teachers, small classes, and a biblical foundation complement a distinctive, time-tested and relevant application of a covenant school philosophy, influenced by the ideas of Charlotte Mason and other mentors. Our school is GAC accredited,  a ministry of Perimeter Church (PCA), and a member of the ChildLight Schools Association.

As we encourage a love of learning in every student, our commitment to preserving childhood is woven into the fabric of our schedule; providing time and space for exploration. As we study a beautiful painting, act out a Shakespeare play, or observe a maple leaf turning, innate interest is ignited in children as persons created in God's image.

Our broad curriculum includes an array of subjects and programs to engage and enrich, including both inspirational and instructional subjects like Bible, physical education, the arts, math, history, science, literature and nature study, all of which encourage exploration and discovery beyond facts and figures. Our love for story found in the living books of all ages is a keystone of our pursuit of knowledge.

On the field, Perimeter Eagles participate in middle school varsity and junior varsity sports throughout the year, including cross country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, track, golf and tennis.  We also offer an exciting Adventure program for after-school hours in the early grades, as well as clubs and enrichment activities for students in upper grades. 

Perimeter School places unprecedented emphasis on intentional parental participation in education. In the early grades, parents are actual teachers in the classroom on Fridays, forming lasting relationships between parents and students alike. This involvement continues into the upper grades as families grow close through serving together during community-wide service projects, field trips, and fundraisers.

This website is the source for all  news, calendars, and events happening within our school. Additionally, we link from our website to ParentsWeb, our secure parent portal, allowing easy access between parents and school staff and teachers. ParentsWeb provides up-to-date classroom calendars, grades, lesson plans, and progress reports.

Aside from this website, we keep in touch through our weekly online publication The Fourth Wall. Each week brings an insightful article written by faculty leadership as well as important school and community announcements. The Fourth Wall will give you a picture of life inside our covenant community. Take a look at the latest edition of The Fourth Wall.
