Barnesville Students are JOYFUL Learners who IMAGINE, EXPLORE, GROW, & ACHIEVE

We believe childhood should be a time for students to explore the world around them, try different things, and imagine the possibilities. That is why Barnesville offers opportunities, not choices. Students shouldn’t have to choose art or science, theater or sports, technology or nature, achievement or joy. It’s the “&” that makes Barnesville School of Arts & Sciences far from standard. We invite you to visit to learn what the “&” could mean for your child.


We understand that the selection of your child's school is one of the most important decisions you'll make as a parent. When you visit Barnesville, you'll see how we've made it a place that celebrates the joy and wonderment of childhood while fostering a love of learning and discovery.

There is no such thing as a "typical" Barnesville student. We welcome families of different cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, and viewpoints. The only commonality among our students is that each and every one is a cherished member of our community. Whatever your child's gifts, we celebrate and nurture them, and look to help build new skills and inspire the pursuit of new interests.

The links on this page will guide you through our admissions process. The first, and perhaps most important, step is to schedule a visit, which is the best way to fully understand and appreciate what we can offer you and your child. Please feel free to call our office at 301.972.0341 if you have any questions.

We look forward to meeting you!
