Support Lovett
In its development along the lines of Progressive Education—as our underlying principles and practices are described—the school has had the loyal, sympathetic, and active cooperation and support of a highly intelligent group of parents.

- Eva Edwards Lovett
The Lovett School could not exist without the support of the Lovett family. Generations of Atlantans have invested in the future of our school, allowing the school to carry out its mission of offering a progressive education grounded in lifelong learning, moral character, and community engagement.

Like most independent schools, tuition and fees do not cover the total cost of educating our students, and so additional financial support from all members of the Lovett community is key. And, as is the case with other independent schools, Lovett solicits tax- deductible gifts and special financial support from its constituencies in several ways.
