The Lovett School is an independent, coeducational day school serving children from Kindergarten through Grade 12. The school was established in 1926 by Mrs. Eva Edwards Lovett, an innovative educator who emphasized the development of the whole child. She began the school with just 20 boys and girls in Grades 1-3 at a former home, and today Lovett has more than 1,550 students from 78 different zip codes and 11 counties in the metropolitan area. The school continually affirms Eva Edwards Lovett’s founding vision of a progressive education rooted in learning, character, and community. Our mission is to graduate young men and women of honor, faith, and wisdom and prepare them to succeed in college and as responsible citizens of the world. We support this mission by offering our students integrated experiences in academics, arts, athletics, and service. Through these experiences, we seek to develop the whole child. As a college-preparatory institution, our coursework is strong, and creative and critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, and a love of learning are major objectives. Our curriculum includes a required year of American Studies; options for African, Asian, and gender studies; and organic and biochemistry. We were one of the first schools in Georgia to offer the AP Chinese exam, the culmination of a Chinese studies program that begins in the Lower School. In addition, we offer a one-to-one laptop program in Grades 4-9, and single-gender classes in Grades 6-8. The Upper School offers 24 honors and 18 advanced placement courses, and all of Lovett's graduates are admitted to four-year colleges from coast to coast and internationally. Our faculty is committed to ongoing professional development and using best practices in their teaching. They strive to be positive role models and are dedicated to encouraging and supporting students in the pursuit of excellence. The average faculty teaching experience is 17 years. Outside the classroom, Lovett encourages our students to discover themselves through the arts and athletics. The statistics bear this out: More than 90 percent of our student body participates in a Fine Arts activity during the year, and close to 80 percent of students in Grades 7-12 are members of at least one sports team. The Lovett community is guided by the school’s character pledge, which begins: "We, who are members of the Lovett community, seek to live lives of good character." Lovett welcomes students of many different faiths and backgrounds. Although not formally affiliated with any specific denomination, Lovett’s philosophy is rooted in the Judeo-Christian tradition and values and encourages a sense of responsibility to God, respect for diversity, service to others, and moral awareness. We are committed to making positive contributions to society, for the betterment of our community, our environment, and our world, and thus service and sustainability are key. Our school’s reach extends beyond Atlanta and into Central America, where Lovett maintains 825 acres of Ecuadoran cloudforest as a preserve and research center. Closer to home, Lovett’s newest building, our Middle School, is LEED-Gold certified, and school vehicles run on biodiesel converted from our cafeteria’s used cooking oil.
