Welcome to M. A. Evans Academy Website

M. A. Evans Academy has been in existence since 1989 and is now accredited by the Georgia Accrediting Commission, Inc. The academy was founded by Lillie Gantt-Evans. Mrs. Gantt-Evans a well know community activist, saw a need in the community http://maevansacademy.com/Site/images/2015-02%20(Feb)/Stephens0002.jpgand executed a plan to educate and mold children in their early years. Being a woman and  mindful of the struggles of African Americans to receive a quality education within the community, she decided to solve some of the social economic problems within our city by starting a school concentrating on Early Childhood education to accommodate students who have late birthdays.

Tour our campus to get a good look at what we have to offer. The campus is located at 345 Edwards Ave, Macon, Georgia. The classroom structure and teachers present a learning experience second to none in the Middle Georgia Community. Our staff has over 100 years combined experience; is excited and enthusiastic  about helping student reach their full potential by  providing a quality education in a Christian Environment.

On behalf of Lillie Gantt-Evans, Founder and CEO of M. A. Evans Academy, the staff, and faculty, we  welcome you to the M. A. Evans Academy website experience and we look forward to educating your children in this life's journey.
