It’s the start of a new year, and we’re excited to greet you at our temporary home!
Chattahoochee Hills Charter School (CHCS) in partnership with Fulton County Schools (FCS) is pleased to announce our temporary home – Chattahoochee Hills Charter School at Flat Shoals Center. This facility is being made available for our scholars so the school year can start as planned. Due to a significant amount of inclement weather since the start of construction, we have encountered a slight delay.
Located at 4025 Flat Shoals Road, Union City, GA 30291, this educational facility includes 16 classrooms, office space, a fully equipped cafeteria, lunch room, and gymnasium. CHCS Board Chair Willie Lovett shares, “We are extremely proud to be a FCS Charter School and are grateful for the district’s support in offering this facility for our scholars as we begin our inaugural year on August 26, 2014.”
Our hope is to occupy the Flat Shoals Center for a brief period as construction on our permanent home in Chattahoochee Hills wraps up. Updates will be provided as we continue to receive reports on campus construction. An announcement will be forthcoming about the move to our permanent campus as it nears completion.
CHCS will host an open house at the Flat Shoals Center on Saturday, August 23, 2014 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
The make-up parent orientation will also be held at the Flat Shoals Center on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at 9:00 AM.
In the coming days, we will make additional announcements regarding drop-off and pick-up routes for the Flat Shoals Center, carpooling options, breakfast and lunch menus/pricing, and other important information to make this transition as smooth as possible for our entire learning community.
As shared during parent orientations – we will have staggered drop-off on our first day of school.
• Kindergarten – 8:00 AM
• First and Second Grades – 8:45 AM
• Third, Fourth and Fifth Grades – 9:15 AM
We will dismiss at 3:15 PM daily and instruction will begin promptly at 8:30 AM beginning August 27, 2014. Doors will open at 8:05 AM and breakfast will be served until 8:30 AM daily.
On behalf of the CHCS Governing Board and staff, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support, patience and understanding as we make great strides toward opening our new school. We will continue to do all we can to offer the best educational environment for our scholars.
We look forward to seeing you at the open house where we can answer any of your questions and concerns. If you would like to speak with our staff in advance, you can always contact our office at 678.466.7300.
Our Mission is to inspire all children to the highest levels of academic achievement

Our Goal is for our students to cultivate the capacity to achieve a meaningful, healthy, flourishing life that embodies responsibility, stewardship, experiential engagement with the arts, agriculture, and the environment in informed, imaginative, and rigorous ways.
Our Values are academic excellence, artistic expression, environmental stewardship, high standards of ethics and good character, a concern for physical health and well-being, and social responsibility.
Our Focus is on a hands-on thematic instructional approach that uses the school’s unique rural surroundings as a framework. It positions agricultural, environmental, and artistic themes as lenses through which the Georgia state performance standards will be achieved and exceeded.
