)-- East Atlanta's First Minority All Girls Private School Opens in New Location.
Philmor Academy Girls Private School (PAGS), is celebrating its official opening at its new facility located at 2285 Randall Road in Lithonia, GA on December 1, 2016 at 10am. The mission of PAGS is to develop global leaders through creating a culture centered around scholarship, leadership, sisterhood and the pursuit of excellence for girls in everything that they undertake. PAGS will serve girls in grades K-8. In addition to providing a unique educational approach, Sherrie Raymore, the school’s founder and lifelong educator, knows that it takes more than a great education at school to help students acquire the critical knowledge, thinking skills, and strength of character required to flourish as students into adulthood. It also takes committed parents who share a common philosophy, which includes respecting every child for her individuality, and of guiding her towards becoming a joyful, independent, motivated student. Through the combined efforts of school, staff, parents and community, the students will achieve success through expectations of excellence.
With the combination of leadership and self-confidence development, PAGS will ensure that all aspects of the learning environment will help develop girls into global leaders. “Our school will provide girls with hands-on practice crucial to self-confidence and leadership development required for global leadership,” said Mrs. Raymore. They will lead their girls to discover the world through their own eyes and experiences. In addition to a unique learning environment, PAGS offers pathways for all students in Mass Communications and Dance, with other pathways to be added in the upcoming years. With the addition of career pathway options within the school day, Mrs. Raymore believes that this will allow students to be excited about learning and career exploration. Their teachers will serve as strong role models to help the students discover their strengths, and leadership abilities and opportunities from their first year. When girls complete their PAGS education, they will understand who they are and will be ready to thrive in mixed-gender educational, career, and social settings.
"I would like to congratulate Mrs. Sherrie Raymore and Philmor Academy Girls School on their new location within Senate District 43. I look forward to her service to our community, and the enthusiasm it brings in securing outstanding education for our children. The partnership with Project Lead and other community agencies is promising for a bright future," said Tonya Anderson, Georgia State Senator elect, District 43.
