Furtah Preparatory School is a private, non-profit, educational institution dedicated to changing lives. We serve students in Cherokee, Cobb, Paulding, Bartow, and Fulton counties. We also have international students from all over the globe.

What makes FPS different? At Furtah Preparatory School we:

  • Correct reading deficits through proven teaching methods
  • Embrace diversity and accommodate the students’ academic and personal needs
  • Participate in an International Exchange program -- previous countries hosted include: Korea, China, Japan, Ethiopia, Latvia, Russia, Serbia, Switzerland, Germany, France, England, Turkey, Colombia, El Salvador, Croatia, Guatemala, & Spain.
  • Teach responsibility in an academic as well as social setting
  • Provide leadership opportunities through student council, athletics, yearbook, and a mentoring program
  • View students as individuals
  • Teach moral values within all activities
  • Instill high self-esteem at all ages


Every child is gifted in some way.  The goal at Furtah Prep is to discover how the child learns, and then to shape the curriculum and teaching methods to the child’s learning differences. Children who struggle in reading may be brilliantly gifted in art or music. Some children may “see” answers without being able to write down the steps from the problem to the solution.  The gift that Furtah Prep provides for children with different learning styles is to instill hope in the child to inspire them into learning. 

FPS currently serves:

  • Elementary (K-5th) and Middle School (6th-8th):
    Our curriculum is designed to integrate with and meet Georgia State Standards and provides a seamless transition into high school.
  • High School (9th-12th):
    Our curriculum is designed to meet Georgia High School Graduation Standards, as well as HOPE Scholarship requirements, while discovering passions and talents.


“With great opportunity comes great responsibility”; therefore, we cherish our families who entrust their children to our care. We encourage you to spend a day with us and discover what we have to offer. Visit our classes, meet the faculty, and experience first-hand the welcoming atmosphere and excellence of our brand of independent education.
