At Märchen Sagen Academy, we believe in the boundless potential of every child. As a certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we are a unique gem in Downtown Decatur, dedicated to inspiring kids locally and globally to explore their creative horizons through unbounded play and cutting-edge technology. Our daily mission is to nurture the next generation of storytellers and innovators by teaching them the magic, art, and science of video and audio production.

Our Impact

In our warm, nurturing environment, equipped with professional gear and guided by caring mentors, children learn to express themselves in powerful and transformative ways. They are challenged and encouraged to understand and harness their innate ability to bring their ideas to life, fostering a spirit of creativity and collaboration over competition.
