Second-Ponce de Leon Baptist Church and the Cathedral of Christ the King have announced a bold new ecumenical collaboration, combining the resources of both historic Atlanta institutions to create a new preschool aimed at better serving the Buckhead community. Christ the King Preschool at Second-Ponce will open in the fall of 2022, providing half-day programs. The preschool, operated by the Cathedral of Christ the King, will be hosted at Second-Ponce’s campus on Peachtree Road in Buckhead.
