School Mission

In 1926 Eva Edwards Lovett, an innovative educator who emphasized the development of the whole child, established in her home a small school for boys and girls. The Lovett School continues today as a Kindergarten through Grade 12, independent, non-profit, coeducational, college preparatory day school which is governed by a self-perpetuating board of trustees. The school is located on 100 acres on the banks of the Chattahoochee River in northwest Atlanta and serves students from the greater metropolitan area. Lovett, operating within the Judeo-Christian tradition, seeks students from all ethnic, cultural, racial, and religious backgrounds who can benefit from a challenging academic program.The school is a community of active learners working in concert for the development of individual success and self-esteem. It employs a comprehensive curriculum which seeks to develop the total child -- intellectually, physically, spiritually, socially, aesthetically, and emotionally. Creative and critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, and a love of learning are major objectives. Lovett values and encourages a sense of responsibility to God, respect for diversity, service to others, moral integrity, environmental awareness, and sensitivity to issues of global significance.A Lovett education is an active partnership of learning among parents, students, and faculty. The faculty and staff strive to be positive role models and are dedicated to encouraging, supporting, and nurturing students in the pursuit of excellence. They are also committed to their own continuing growth and development. The school's extensive facilities provide each student with an opportunity for a full range of offerings in academics, fine arts, and physical development. The broad curriculum has as its foundation a caring and supporting atmosphere that celebrates each individual and the unique potential of every child. Graduates of The Lovett School should be men and women of honor and faith who are prepared for a successful college experience.
