Private school in Atlanta buys campus of school that shut down earlier this year

Nov. 20, 2023
Atlanta International School has acquired the 25-acre campus of Brandon Hall School, which ceased operations in May.

Atlanta International School has finalized the purchase of the 25-acre Sandy Springs, Georgia, campus of the former Brandon Hall School, which shut down in May.

Rough Draft Atlanta reports that the additional property will more than double Atlanta International's footprint. The new acreage will enable the school to expand its academic offerings, according to a press release.

Brandon Hall filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier this year in an attempt to sell its assets and pay its creditors in full.

Atlanta International, a private school for preschool through 12th grade, has been housed since 1995 on a 17-acre campus in the Garden Hills neighborhood of Buckhead. The Sandy Springs property will enable the school to increase its student body and diversify its academic programming.

The former Brandon Hall site has classrooms, large meeting spaces, laboratories, student dormitories, employee residential units, tennis courts, a gym, and a playing field.

The growth of Atlanta International prompted school officials to look for additional space to accommodate the needs of a growing student population.

Immediate uses being considered for the new campus:

  • Current students and programs using woodland spaces, buildings, and sports facilities.
  • Expanded summer camp offerings.
  • Development of an innovation hub.
