About The Lovett School

Sponsored

Upper-School2_400The Lovett School is an independent, college-preparatory day school serving students in kindergarten through grade twelve. Since Eva Edwards Lovett founded the school in 1926, the school has been a leader in progressive education, with an emphasis on “the whole child.”

Lovett’s reach extends beyond the Buckhead neighborhood—students come from seventy-two different zip codes across Atlanta—and even into Central America, where Lovett maintains 825 acres of Ecuadoran cloud forest as a preserve and research center. Exclusive research partnershipsUS_Marine-Bio with the Georgia Aquarium and Atlanta Botanical Garden give our students authentic research and lab experiences in marine biology, botany, and genetics.

Lovett was also one of the first schools in Georgia to offer AP Chinese, the culmination of a Chinese studies program that begins in the Lower School. Additionally, makerspace labs, which includes access to the school’s theater set workshop, modeling software, 3D printers, laser cutter, and a lathe, allow students to tackle real world problems.
