General Information

Our Vision and Purpose

Ault Academy vision and purpose is to provide high expectations for all learners in a safe, secure and supportive learning environment. A strong emphasis is placed on a quality curriculum that emphasizes problem-solving, critical thinking, responsibility, work ethic, and citizenship to enable each student to thrive and survive in society.

Our History

In the Spring of 1997, the Board of Twin Cedars Youth Services, Inc. initiated a capital funds drive to renovate the gym annex of the East Depot High/Boys Junior High. The Ault Academy, named in honor of longtime esteemed local educator Ethyl Ault became a state of the art educational facility including:


  • Five classrooms

  • Vocational area

  • Media center

  • Testing/conference room

  • Individual instruction area

  • Administrative offices


  • A $2.5 Million capital campaign also included a multi-service building in Columbus on the Anne Elizabeth Shepherd Home campus. The multi-million dollar goal was exceeded and Ault Academy was dedicated on September 30, 1999. Then, President of LaGrange College Dr. Stuart Gulley delivered the keynote address. Charles Hudson, Jr. served as Master of Ceremonies. Mrs. Ault was quoted saying, “I want our boys and girls to know that, no matter what happens in life, no matter how much despair and hopelessness there may be, you will always be okay if you have a foundation of faith and honor.” Over 500 participated in the dedication ceremony and tour.


  • The Academy has received accreditation through Cognia as well as full approval through the Georgia Department of Education. These achievements allowed students from Twin Cedars Ault Academy to receive high school diplomas and to qualify for the HOPE Scholarship.
