About Romar Academy: Our History

Mrs. Peggy A. Hinson established Romar Academy in August, 1978, as a non-sectarian independent school.  The name “Romar” was derived from the combination of the letters of Mrs. Hinson’s two sons, RObert and MARtin.  A third son, Jeffrey, was born during the inception of Romar Academy.

 

Mrs. Hinson’s credentials included experiences as a day care director, school administrator, university and public school instructor in North Carolina, New York, and Georgia.  She earned degrees and certificates from North Carolina A & T (B.A. Biology and Chemistry), Long Island University (M.A. in Early Childhood Education and Reading), Brooklyn College (Doctoral Studies), New York University and Georgia State University.

 

Initially located in the West End Presbyterian Church at 3078 Sewell Road, SW, Atlanta, Georgia, Romar Academy accommodated twenty-eight children during its first year of operation.  Instructional levels were Kindergarten through Third Grade.  There were three later locations in southwest Atlanta before the school settled into its present location in East Point.

 

Romar Academy’s campus accommodates three hundred students who are two years old through fifth grade and employs teachers and other staff members with degrees from institutions throughout the United States.

 

Located in the city of East Point in Fulton County, Romar Academy attracts students as far south as Peachtree City, as far east as Stone Mountain, as far north as Roswell and as far west as Douglasville.  Although Romar Academy does not offer transportation to and from these locations, parents often carpool.  Many have made lasting friends in the process.

 

Since the initial year of operation, students have worn the required yellow and brown uniforms with pride as they have excelled in basic curriculum classes of language, which emphasizes speech, writing, reading, phonics, mathematics, conversational Spanish, music appreciation, art, physical education, social studies, science, library instruction and computer applications.  Initial instruction levels were kindergarten through fifth grade with the school now accepting students from pre-school, age two, through fifth grade.

 

Students enjoy a variety of cultural activities.  Frequently, various groups and/or individual performers in and around the Atlanta area are invited to the school to perform.  In addition, parents are encouraged to visit the classrooms and share their diverse cultures, occupations and talents with the students.
