I am currently a senior at the Academy of Richmond County. The past three and a half years have allowed me to grow as an individual in ways I never saw coming. I have made wonderful memories at my high school that I will cherish for many years to come. Also, there have been situations that have pushed me out of my comfort zone both socially and academically. I believe that I made the best out of my four years, and would encourage any prospective students to do the same!

I attended the Academy of Richmond County from 2009, 9th grade, to 2013, 12th grade. Overall, I had an excellent high school experience. The school spirit is awesome and the Purple pride is nothing that can be compared. Although I had limited access to resources and tutors, it did not affect my overall GPA. There are many available clubs and sports students can connect with at ARC. If I could change three things at Richmond Academy it would be the diversity, school lunch, and better choice of course electives.
I wouldn’t have wanted to go any other school in the county. The Academy of Richmond County has not only help me academically but socially. Before high school, I was very much an antisocial person. Now in my senior year, I had the privilege of being on the homecoming court. I am in the IB (International Baccalaureate) program. I was involved in sports throughout my tears and currently involved in organizations and clubs such as Student Council and Future Business Leaders of America.
