Welcome to

Stratford Academy!

Our motto – “Freedom for Excellence” - is evident in all aspects of our school. From academics to fine arts to athletics, we strive for excellence in all that we do. Stratford provides a rigorous college prep curriculum coupled with a nurturing family environment. Our well-rounded graduates leave for college better prepared than most, particularly in the areas of critical thinking and writing.

There is no better way to experience Stratford than to see it firsthand, so we invite you to come visit our beautiful campus, see the classrooms and visit with students and faculty. From the moment you arrive, our goal is to make you and your family feel right at home.

Please contact me anytime with any questions you might have about the admissions process or to schedule a tour. We are happy to do so at your convenience.

Stratford prides itself on diversity and places strong values on academic, religious and personal freedom. The school welcomes and embraces students of all faiths, backgrounds and talents. Stratford has an enrollment of 775 students, age 3 through grade 12, and attracts a student population from 13 counties in Middle Georgia. There are 4,094 Stratford graduates now living in 46 states (plus the District of Columbia) and 17 countries.

With that in mind, we have "Seven Lessons in Excellence" to correspond to our seven decades of existence and share some of the ways we live these out.
