School History

For more than 40 years, Glenwood School has provided the Chattahoochee Valley area with a positive alternative to public education. Founded in 1970, Glenwood prides itself as being a school where family and Christian values are respected, and classes are structured and based on traditional curriculum.

Glenwood School was founded on the basis that its students would function within a Christian, family-oriented environment. As a reminder of the school's values, each day begins with the Lord's Prayer and Pledge of Allegiance. Chapel services are held regularly. Students are expected to conduct themselves with dignity and courtesy at all times. Glenwood recognizes the family unit as the fundamental building block of Christian society. Thus, parents play an important role in the Glenwood philosophy and are encouraged to participate in a large variety of school activities. Additionally, parents are encouraged to support the school's discipline code and to "practice what we teach" at home.

​Accredited by the Alabama Independent School Association (AISA) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), Glenwood seeks to provide a whole-education, to prepare students for college and potential occupations, to prepare today's youth to become tomorrow's leaders. As a nondenominational Christian School, Glenwood supports biblical and traditional family values while respecting various ethnic backgrounds.
