Program Overview

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
-Mahatma Gandhi
The Service and Leadership program was established to teach and inspire our students to develop a sense of social responsibility, empathy, and connection to their local and global community. Currently, service permeates the fabric of life at Athens Academy through academics, athletics, fine arts, student leadership, and character education. Our goal is to instill the lifelong habit of service in every student. Service to school, community, nation, and world are emphasized by direct contributions of time, personal talents, and resources by students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumni to improve the quality of life for others and the natural environment we share.

Service is widely emphasized within the academic curriculum at Athens Academy. Many faculty members incorporate components of service and leadership within the framework of their classes, thus enriching the overall educational experience of their students and allowing them to see firsthand the benefits of serving others.
