Our Mission & Vision
Foster an inclusive educational community that inspires excellence.
Join us for the
'23-'24 School Year
Enrollment for classes in the '23-'24 school year is now open. Contact us now for information about the '23-'24 school year. Classes meet on Thursdays and clubs meet on Tuesdays. Tutoring is available by appointment. We serve middle and high school students in Historic Lawrenceville.
A year long elective class. Students will explore the process of staging a theatrical show. This includes play analysis, publicity, and technical theatre disciplines. The members of this class will serve in the lead production team roles for our fall Radio Play and our spring production of Alice in Wonderland.
A year long elective class. American history is a required high school course for students matriculating to many Colleges and Universities. This course will cover pre-colonial history through the modern era. The time frame will correlate with that of the World History class. We conclude our year around the Raegan administration to allow sufficient distance for historical analysis.
The Modern period is associated with fundamental changes from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries. The period begins with the end of Pre-modern age and while this era continues to present day, we will end with the fall of the Berlin Wall. Literature is integrated into this course and novels will include Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, Around the World in 80 Days, and Night by Elie Wiesel.
The Interact Club of Hazelwood Gwinnett gives students who are 12 - 18 years old an opportunity to engage in service projects. This club is affiliated with Rotary International and sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lawrenceville.
The Hazelwood Prep Theatre Club offers the opportunity to perform in two shows a year. The first is a fall Radio Play and the second will be a spring presentation of Alice in Wonderland. Audition details coming soon.
Creative Writing Club
The creative writing club will provide regular opportunities for students to share and workshop original scripts and other creative writing works. As well as occasional visits by guest facilitators who will provide activities and guidance through various writing workshops. Additionally, this club will edit and make layout decisions for our literary magazine the Raven's Review (published quarterly).
Additional Clubs TBD
Additional clubs will be dependent upon interest and instructor availability.
What is a Passion Project?
A passion project is not defined by the parent or instructor. It is your opportunity to control your education and learn through something you are passionate about.
A passion project should excite and motivate you. You could decide to establish a business or Nor For Profit organization, write a blog or book, start a community initiative, undertake independent research, or invent something.

Ms. Andrea homeschooled her two children from 2003 until 2013, when the youngest entered college. She wrote for numerous websites and homeschool blogs, and since graduating her own children (who currently hold Bachelors and Masters degrees) has been immersed in theatre arts and counseling homeschool families.
Ms. Mere is currently homeschooling a pair of feral children, who somehow became teenage boys. She is a graphic designer and has served on the board of several not-for-profit organizations. She is excited to help make the magic of Hazelwood happen.
