Established in 1972 and located in Sandy Springs, Georgia, Mount Vernon inspires innovation in Preschool through grade 12. We are dedicated to creating a learning environment that equips all students to be college ready, globally competitive and engaged citizens leaders. Leading national conversation around K-12 integration of design thinking, students collaborate through research, experiment with results, and ultimately produce prototypes to impact the world.

TMVS amplifies the skills needed to engage in real-world, people-centered problem solving through design thinking and project-based learning. Mount Vernon offers students the extraordinary opportunity to become lead designers of their own learning as they observe, question, empathize, experiment, and implement solutions to human-centered issues. Students gain real-world experience by collaborating with corporations and non-profits such as Delta, Porsche, AT&T, the Center for Civil and Human Rights, and Magic Wheelchair Project.

As a partner of Stanford’s d.School, Mount Vernon launched its Mount Vernon Institute for Innovation (MVIFI) in 2010 as a research and design arm of TMVS. Students are constantly exposed to and encouraged to interact with experts in local, national, and global communities to design a better world. Visit to schedule your tour today.
