I am always proud to tell people where I went to high school, and it makes my day when I meet someone who has a common tie to Athens Academy. --Turner Trapnell, Class of 2020
Dear Fellow Alums,
I am excited to serve as this year’s Athens Academy Alumni Board president. Athens Academy has always been a special place for me. I joined the Class of 1998 in the seventh grade. I remember being amazed that you could just leave your backpack on the lawn and come back for it later. The sense of community and family between students and faculty was—and still is—remarkable. Returning to Athens Academy campus still feels like home.
Many things have changed on campus, such as renovations, new buildings, and new programs, but the sense of community and family has remained unchanged. Our traditions remain strong, yet they are ever-evolving to ensure that Athens Academy remains a sought-out educational institution.
The foundation of an Athens Academy education prepared me for college and my career as a business owner. When I became a parent, I knew I wanted my children to attend Athens Academy for their education. As an alumna and a current parent, I have the privilege of experiencing Athens Academy and recognizing just how valuable and unique this school truly is.
We are represented nationwide by over 3,000 Athens Academy alumni. Whether they are near or far, our alumni are exemplifying excellence with honor in their respective fields and communities. I encourage you to visit our campus to witness the incredible talent and achievements of our students. You can enjoy outstanding student performances, attend a concert, witness the Sparbots robotics teams in action, watch a tennis match, or come experience a Friday night under the lights on Slaughter Field to cheer on Football Team 46!
There are so many good things going on at Athens Academy!
