A school specializing in teaching high-achieving children with autism and other learning and social challenges is moving to the Oglethorpe University campus, the university has announced.

The Piedmont School of Atlanta will relocate this summer from its current location at the Boys & Girls Club on North Druid Hills Road, Oglethorpe said in a press release.

“The Piedmont School is thrilled to move to the Oglethorpe campus and the beautiful learning environment it will provide for our students,” Dr. Catherine Trapani, head of school for The Piedmont School, said in a press release. “I envision Oglethorpe students serving as role models to the children of the Piedmont School, inspiring academic achievement and commitment to education.”

The school provides students in kindergarten through ninth grade with an education that addresses their academic potential and social and emotional needs, Oglethorpe said.
