Shreiner Academy is inviting the East Cobb community to celebrate the holidays with them Friday, Dec. 12 from 6 to 9 p.m. Shreiner Academy’s students and staff are throwing a Winter Wonderland event with children’s crafts, an indoor showing of the movie Frozen, special Frozen movie character visits and photos with Santa. Shreiner is asking all visitors to bring in a new toy or clothing item for ages 4 to 13 as admission. All donations will go to the MUST Ministries Toy Shop.
Shreiner Academy is a peaceful oasis located on convenient Terrell Mill Road near the I-75 Delk Road exit. The eight-acre wooded campus provides private educational opportunities for students age 2 through 8th grade. They pride themselves on small class size, individual attention, and outstanding faculty who really care about their students.
Melissa Crimminger, a Shreiner math teacher for 11 years, says that the academy is Cobb’s best kept secret. “We focus on the whole child and let them be who they are,” says Melissa. “Our aim is to bring out the very best in our students, while making sure they grow socially and academically.”
Using individualized and differentiated instruction, including transversing grade levels, Shreiner Academy is able to teach an accelerated curriculum while maintaining a warm environment in which children have fun learning.
Shreiner Academy offers a strong core academic curriculum, including music, art, physical education and Spanish classes from preschool to middle school. Additionally, the intimate setting provides opportunities for students to dive into hands-on learning and service. They plant and maintain vegetable gardens, perform in the school musicals, as well as give back to the local community.
Shreiner is now accepting applications for this year and next. The academy is hosting an open house for prospective families Thursday, Feb. 26 from 9 a.m. to noon and offers campus tours upon request. Shreiner is located at 1340 Terrell Mill Road in Marietta.
