For over 50 years, Athens Academy has been the leader in education in Northeast Georgia. With a focus on EACH child, our faculty are preparing our students for that next step in their journey to college and life beyond. Whether you have a Preschooler learning his letters, a Lower Schooler developing her writing skills, a Middle Schooler solving algebraic problems, or an Upper Schooler exploring genetics, Spartan students are guided by expert teachers who help make learning creative and impactful.
Along with Academics, Athens Academy places strong emphasis Arts, Athletics, and Service and Leadership. These four pillars ensure that Spartan students have a healthy balance of tools as they navigate life. We are proud of:
- Our 100% college acceptance rate; over the past decade, graduates have matriculated at colleges and universities across 30 states, Washington, D.C., and even internationally.
- Nineteen years of Service Day, when every Upper School student and faculty member spends the day volunteering in the Athens community.
- Our strong athletic program, with 50 State Championships over the past 50 years.
- The fact that Athens Academy is the only school in the area providing string orchestra education to ALL second grade students.
