Located in the 1,500-acre Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve in North Georgia, Elachee's curriculum is designed to develop a healthy ecological consciousness and includes preschool, elementary, and secondary education programs parallelling the Georgia Performance Standards. Other offerings include teacher education, summer day camp, special public programs, scout and home school programs, children's birthday parties, and facility rentals.

Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve serves as an invaluable outdoor classroom and is being preserved in a wilderness state.
