I have absolutely loved my time at Athens Academy! The teachers are so engaged in the students and will go out of their way to support and help anyone. The students are supportive of each other. I love going to the football game and seeing the drama students cheering then going to the drama play and seeing the football players on the front row supporting their classmates. Finally, I have loved that service is so important. Whether we are serving dinners each Friday, organizing blood drives, working with Special Olympics or tutoring our Lower School students, I love that service is so important to everyone.

I have attended Athens Academy for 14 years, and I believe that, overall, it is a great school.
The Good: (mostly) amazing faculty, can build meaningful relationships with teachers and peers, friendly students (generally), good academic quality, beautiful campus and buildings, many intellectual students
The Mediocre: the food, diversity levels (they're getting better), aid in the college search/application process
The Bad: high levels of cliques, overall community can be judgmental and cliquey as well, lack of AP class opportunities, lack of club opportunities and other unique extracurricular activities, some difficulty in coming in as a minority student, extremely expensive (not worth it in my opinion if you live in Oconee County), many students have difficulty in getting into good colleges (including UGA)
Athens Academy's grading system really affects your chances of getting into colleges. It is a small private school in a small town in Athens, Georgia and it grades you like you are attending the most elite and prestigious school in the nation when it's not. I have had very few teachers that I have actually enjoyed and the cafeteria food is awful and we pay so much money for it. And when it came time to apply for colleges I received little to no help from the school and our college counselors even though the schools labels itself as a "college preparatory school". I had to hire someone outside of the school to be my college counselor when we were already spending so much money on the school itself.
