About our Private School

The history of The Wilson Academy begins with its founder, Byron F. Wilson. In 1999, The Ohio State University graduate ventured to Atlanta to begin his professional tutoring company. Within a year, Wilson’s company began tutoring students in Dekalb County, GA. Though effective, Wilson felt that tutoring was somewhat of a Band aid approach to a greater problem. The real problem was that students weren’t getting what they needed during the day. So in 2002, at the age of 25, Wilson decided to transition his company from tutoring to an all-day school program.

The Wilson Academy’s mission is multifaceted. Its main objective is to provide quality, private education, at a reasonable cost. Quality private education shouldn’t have to be expensive, which is why you’ll find The Wilson Academy’s tuition to be among the most competitive in Dekalb County, GA.

The Wilson Academy also believes in overall human development. Our students aren’t only learning their subjects; they are also learning how to become proper young men and women. We groom our students to be community leaders, equipping them with the tools necessary to become successful in whichever endeavors they choose.

Today, The Wilson Academy has grown into one of Dekalb County’s best private schools. With its year-round schedule, unique curriculum, and innovative approach, The Wilson Academy has become a leader in private education.


The Wilson Academy is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization.
