The History of Our School
Based in Faith and Values. Excited about the Future.
The EJ Wright School for Success began in 2017 as the long-time goal and vision of Head of Schools, Cynthia Larkin. Through the strong partnership and support of her husband, Eric Larkin, and her family, the Wright School we know today has exponentially grown from a labor of love and commitment to educational excellence through after-school tutoring, summer programming, daycare and pre-school education in various locations throughout Clayton and Fulton counties, to a 15-acre campus in South Fulton.
As graduates of HBCUs with ties to and service in the military, Cynthia and Eric Larkin have always had a passion for giving back and providing a path for others to achieve greatness. They now see the Wright School as the culmination of their hard work and shared vision for the future of quality education for children who come from similar backgrounds as theirs, while acknowledging we live in a global, evolving society and fully embracing inclusivity as a cornerstone of The Wright School’s foundation.
Still in its infancy, the future is bright for The Wright School as we seek to partner with the community and strategic partners to further establish ourselves as South Fulton’s private school of choice.
