Welcome to Altamont!

We are so happy you wish to learn more about what makes Altamont one of the premier independent school programs in the Southeast. Our mission – to improve the fabric of society by graduating compassionate, well-educated individuals capable of independent thinking and innovative ideas – shapes every experience at Altamont.

With a large school program in a small school environment, students have the opportunity to participate in all areas of school life. The website has a wealth of information about this program – academic curriculum, the arts, leadership opportunities, athletics, student life and more – but there is no substitute for an in-person visit.

Please take a few minutes to explore the site and then contact the admissions office to schedule a tour, attend a student shadow day or learn more about open houses. We thank you for your interest and stand ready to help you determine if the Altamont community is the right fit for you.
