Lula Lake Academy is seeking state approval to build a charter school serving grades 6-12 on the Georgia side of Lookout Mountain. With a focus on the environment, the “place-based” educational instruction focuses on the natural and man-made environments.
The curriculum will include learning about the area’s history, folk culture, social systems and economics. The mission of this method of education will teach children to appreciate the local landscape, respect the community and be good stewards of the local environment. Plans to partner with surrounding Lula Lake Land Trust and Cloudland Canyon State Park are sure to support and enrich this mission of place-based education.
“Lula Lake Academy is the school in response to what the community says they want,” said Debbie Tringale, Executive Director of the proposed academy. “We are excited to enter into the next stage of the process and hopefully open a school next fall.”
If approved, plans include offering 6-8th grades initially with additional plans to add a high school grade sequentially each year. If Lookout Mountain, GA becomes the home of this charter school initiative, it will be the only charter school in Dade and Walker counties.
