Our Lower School classes are capped at 20 students, and all of our students are known by name. The Class of 2020 (74 students) received over $11 million in scholarships, with 36 Zell Miller scholars and 37 HOPE scholars. We have received the Forsyth County News "Best Private School" award for six consecutive years, and are a 2014 National Blue Ribbon School. We have been a Cardinal Newman Society "School of Excellence" honoree since 2007. Our new Lower School building opened in August 2019, and a new turf athletic field debuted in September 2019.
