I have cousins who have attended Heritage Academy in Columbus. I think the tuition is in the $5000-$6000 range.

Good Morning, I recently found this website and your concerns. By now you must have found some place to live, but if not my family rents out 5 different houses (all to CAFB personnel). They are located in numerous locations around town, all located in easy to get to and safe locations. So if you decide to stay in Columbus and experience the rich history, the Tenn-Tom river, the MSU Bulldogs (football, basketball, baseball), travel to Tupelo for shopping similar to Warner-Robbins, and other major cities, then please email me and I send some personal info to get intouch with my parents or we can contact you with the property/s coming avail. As for the school system, whites do go to school with other races and get along just fine. There are private schools like Heritage Academy or Annunciation Catholic, but as long as your children pay attention and ask questions in class the teachers will take the time to help them. The teachers like interaction, and hate disruptive students (those students are sent to the Principles office and disciplined on a regular basis as in any other school system). While the scores may not look all that great for Columbus students, it is also up to the student and parents to teach/learn outside of the classroom. If after a semester or two you think they are not progressing as they should, then maybe consider taking them out. However, Columbus requires core level classes as any other school system that prepares them for college if that is where they want to go. If they are not going to college they may avoid such classes as Algebra, etc. for more hands on classes.

I grew up in Columbus a long time ago and left to explore the world with the U.S. Navy. Since getting out I have chosen to live in every city that I find interesting. This has taken me to New Orleans, Dallas, Austin, Los Angeles, San Diego, Boston, and my current residence of Manhattan.

The only real culture shock to speak of in Columbus is the lack of shopping and higher end restaraunts that you would have in Warner-Robbins. The racial background is about the same and the heat just as bad.

I hope this helps with any future decisions you may have.

Default columbus school system & the CAFB

Rentals are pretty tight, and expensive for the most part. The housing office on base might be able to help.

I am a city school bus driver and as of now, the CAFB students still CHOOSE which school system they want(city or county)
