Georgia Fugees Academy Charter School (GFACS) is a community-based school designed to meet the needs of refugee and new American students through English language acquisition and foundational skill study, culturally relevant curriculum and wraparound supports, arts programming, and soccer participation. Every student works as a team member on and off the field to bridge significant gaps in formal schooling to graduate on time.

The core pillars of our academy model are:

  • Year-round programming

  • Integration of soccer for all

  • Holistic English acquisition

  • Scaffolded, Data-Driven Small Group Instruction

  • Relational, Trauma-Informed Approach to Schooling

GFACS contracts out the Fugees Family (ESP) to operate the school based on their decades long experience and successful track record with the community.
