About Us

Dade County, Georgia is a beautiful, serene valley that extends across the foothills of stately Sand Mountain and historic Lookout Mountain in the extreme northwest corner of Georgia.  It is bordered by the state of Alabama and Tennessee, and is home to Cloudland Canyon (see image to the right) and Covenant College.  More importantly, it is home to a community of people who uphold values that are rooted in character and tradition, and a caring and uplifting culture that promotes individual success and well-being.  Dade County takes pride in the fact that this culture thrives throughout every aspect of life, especially throughout the Dade County School System.
