Wesley International Academy is an Atlanta public charter school for Kindergarten through 8th grade.
Located within the Maynard H. Jackson High School cluster, Wesley International Academy is an accredited International Baccalaureate (IB) World Programme School, serving more than 750 students.
Students receive daily lessons in Mandarin Chinese, and select middle school students experience a summer immersion program in China.
Wesley's mission is to develop the whole child through an international lens, focused on academics, language acquisition, equitable (and diverse) learning, and a better understanding that personal wellness is integral to student success.
Our vision is to establish a space where diversity, equity and inclusion are at the core of who we are. Embrace the whole adult and child through a curriculum that supports the exploration and inquiry into global cultures. Foster a community where all members (students, faculty, and families from all identities) are open-minded, cared for, and valued. Commit to actualizing this vision through continued learning opportunities, building, and maintaining strong, sustainable relationships with our community, and ensuring that all voices are heard.
"Wesley is the best school I could have ever chosen for my daughter! I am truly grateful for the experience she is having. The Phoenix here are definitely rising!" Brittney M. Waters, mom of a Wesley 4th grader
"Wesley International Academy was designed to include all students in the city of Atlanta because in doing so, our students bring the richness of the city to Wesley. Our dream was to create a high-quality school for parents with little or no educational choice and to attract a diverse student body both culturally and socioeconomically by offering a world-class International Baccalaureate accredited school located in the heart of the city. Wesley educates students to think, act, and reflect with the goal they will become future assets to our city, state, and beyond."
