Long History & Vibrant Future

Stratford Academy's history goes back 60 years. It was founded in 1960 by Macon parents who saw the need for an independent college prep school in the area. The school first opened its doors in September of that year in the antebellum Overlook Mansion on Coleman Hill, located in historic downtown Macon.

The school had just 13 alumni in its graduating class in 1962, but it has gone on to graduate nearly 3,800 students since. It now houses its facilities on a sprawling 107-acre campus on Peake Road.

Stratford takes pride in its welcoming spirit, with a diverse student body of all faiths, backgrounds, and talents. The faculty boasts deep experience and multi-dimensional talents, and they're always looking to expand their horizons. It's the perfect environment for your child to explore, develop, and grow!
