Service: More than an Action
Service and Leadership is an important pillar of the Athens Academy education as we seek to teach and inspire our students to develop a sense of social responsibility, empathy, and connection to their local and global community. 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.
Leadership: More than a Position
Athens Academy offers many opportunities for student leadership. Some positions are student-body elected, some are class elected, and some roles are filled through an application and selection process. All students in leadership positions must maintain good academic and Honor Council standing. Student leaders participate in the weekly Leadership Seminar in the Upper School.
Clubs & Activities
A vital part of the Athens Academy experience extends beyond the classroom to clubs and activities, which help students discover their talents and explore and expand their passions. Through club experiences, Athens Academy students stretch as leaders and practice creative collaboration. Whether they're working on deadline for a school publication, handling webcasts for a sporting event, or packaging meals for Rise Against Hunger, our students are having a positive impact on the world.
