The Mobile County Public School System, with the tremendous support of the Barton Academy Foundation, is thrilled to have reopened Barton Academys doors to Mobile County students in grades 6 through 9. Barton Academy was originally built in 1836 and became Alabama’s first public school. The school’s doors reopened in August 2021 as a model for 21st century learning with a focus on global studies and entrepreneurship, taught through a project-based curricular approach. The Barton Academy for Advanced World Studies’ curriculum includes courses with a focus on global studies, world languages, entrepreneurship, and fine arts to enhance the advanced core course offerings. Barton houses numerous innovative labs including collaborative, emerging technologies, and STEM among many additional experiences to prepare our students for their future. Adventure awaits under the Barton dome.
