Who are We?

“You may know everything about your child, but we know everything about 2 to 18-year-olds. Let’s learn from each other.”
 Gardner Barrier, Head of School

Above all, we’re educational experts who know your child.

We believe that a truly excellent education integrates opportunities to explore a variety of interests while developing a strong academic base. It is this combination of passion and purpose that creates children who are excited about learning.

Our school is a special place where students are prepared for college and beyond. How are our students ready for what’s ahead?

  • Invested faculty - Our teachers, coaches, and counselors are all invested in making sure each child is valued, understood, and challenged at the right time.
  • Acclaimed college counseling - Our college counselors are attentive to each student’s potential and are equipped to make the right-fit college recommendations.
  • Collaborative community – Our teachers, staff, and families all come together for one common goal – an exceptional educational experience.

We invite your family to visit our vibrant campus to experience Forsyth for yourself.
