Elachee Nature Academy allows children the chance to ‘find their place’ in the real world, at their own pace.
Students benefit from guided exploration and play along the hiking trails and in the streams of the 1,440-acre Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve and around the grounds of the Elachee Nature Science Center campus.
Spending the majority of their school day in brains-on/hands-on activity, not busy work, K-3 students delve into topics made fun by teachers who do not ‘teach to the test,’ but rather encourage independent thinking and problem-solving.
Elachee Nature Academy K-3 students become confident, curious learners.
Elachee Nature Academy began in 2013 to serve Preschool students. The school expanded in 2016 to offer a combined Kindergarten-1st Grade class. For 2021, the school is offering a combined 2nd-3rd class.
Managed and operated by Elachee Nature Science Center in Gainesville, Georgia, this nature school is part of Elachee’s quality environmental education programming, a source of delight and inspiration since 1979.
