Academic Results

What sets an Athens Academy education apart from all others?  Athens Academy is built on a foundation of four pillars: academics, arts, athletics, and service and leadership.  These four pillars and our mission of "excellence with honor in the educational and personal experience of each student" are at core of everything we do, every day.  We offer our students a highly talented and dedicated faculty and an innovative curriculum; integrated media and technology programs; an emphasis on integrity and honor, beginning in the earliest grades; a global approach to learning, to prepare them for success in a rapidly-changing world; opportunities for service and leadership beginning as early as Preschool; and a wide variety of options for creative self-expression through the arts, technology, athletics, and more.

Over the past decade, over 35% of all National Merit Semi-Finalists named in Clarke and Oconee counties have been Athens Academy students--including all public, private, and home-schooled students. Over 94% of our students have scored a 3 or higher on all Advanced Placement exams in the past five years, with 73% scoring a 4 or higher. One-hundred percent of our students are accepted to college each year, with members of the Class of 2017 attending the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Princeton University, Johns Hopkins University, Wake Forest University, and many more across fifteen states, Washington, D.C., and Canada. 

We invite you to take a closer look at everything an Athens Academy education can offer your child. If you have specific questions, please don't hesitate to contact Patrick Cuneo, director of Academic Affairs, by email or at 706-433-2403.
