Continental Colony Elementary School is located at 3181 Hogan Road SW in Atlanta, Georgia. Nestled in the historical Greenbriar area, home of the "Prowling Panthers".  The school was built in 1962 under the leadership of Superintendent Dr. John W. Letson.  It has remained a thriving K-5 school in the area.  Due to its history and remote location, the school works in strong collaboration with the local community.  
We want parents and students to “choose” Continental Colony ES for their route as they travel on an educational journey to middle school and beyond. Throughout the journey, all stakeholders will unite to educate the total child with a curriculum that includes character education, knowledge of healthy eating habits and physical well-being, exploration of career options, and partnerships with parents, community, and local colleges. We will set the standard of excellence.
