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.

Athens Academy has been consistently a strong challenge (academically) while also serving as my second home. It’s not an exaggeration to say students here know everybody on the faculty and in the surrounding grades by first and last names. The teachers are absolutely phenomenal, and I honestly couldn’t think of a way to improve the school in that regard. The opportunity is absolutely there for students to become academically prepared for college and beyond, but the emphasis on service is one of a kind. Athens Academy gives its students so many ways to succeed. This is a special place.
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)
