About us: Barton Academy was Alabama's FIRST public school, built in 1836. It reopened as Mobile's newest magnet school in 2021 after undergoing a complete, state-of-the-art interior renovation thanks to the tremendous support of the Barton Academy Foundation, a private non-profit organization who made it their mission to restore Barton Academy. We have had a tremendous reopening year. Our students and staff have already made a name for themselves winning awards in art, music, and academics. We even have one of Alabama's Final Four Teachers the Year at Barton Academy. Barton Academy is a close-knit school community with wonderful parental support, an award-winning faculty, and outstanding students. We have a growth mindset and believe all children can blossom into great scholars.
