The school is the first Infant through 12th grade Jewish day school in Greater Atlanta. It previously had two campuses, the lower school located in Sandy Springs and the upper school located in Doraville.[2][3] However, in August 2017, the upper school moved into a new building added on to the Sandy Springs location.

Atlanta Jewish Academy is accredited by AdvancED (formerly SACS)[4] and the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS).[5]

The first head of school was Rabbi Pinchos Hecht. The second head of school is Rabbi Ari Leubitz, who began his term on August 1, 2016.
