Our family experience has been very positive since shifting our children to Augusta Prep. Our experiences in the Middle School and High School have been very good. We appreciate the culture of high expectations. My kids think at Prep, it is cool to "be smart".

Academics
- Rigorous and advanced
- Broad and deep
- New classes continuously being offered

Diversity
- Race and religion
- Class offerings
- Extracurricular choices

High Expectations
- Baked into the culture
- Students reinforce directly
- Academically as well as behaviorally

In general, we like how excellence is celebrated at Augusta Prep. From the sports field to the classroom to the theater and clubs.

Finally, there is no question that students are prepared for college when they graduate.

The education at Augusta Prep in the best in the CSRA! My children love school and can't wait to go back each and every day. They speak positively about their teachers and administrators, and enjoy the various sports, clubs, and fine arts activities available to them. And as a parent, I am thrilled the student population has 38% diversity! What I have been disappointed about is a very SMALL group of parents who are keep slandering the school on this website because they are upset over a faculty member getting dismissed. They post reviews that contain inaccurate facts hoping to drive away new families. Potential families: please know that 95% of us love our school and the faculty love their jobs! As attending private school is a choice, thankfully these "negative nellies" are not returning next year and will take their antagonism with them because the majority is happy and can't wait for their children to graduate from APDS!
My family has been at Augusta prep for approximately ten years. My children came in in preschool and have gone into the middle school-and we love that they will stay through senior year! We have loved our school and all that it has to offer at every stage of the process! The environment is very diverse and supportive of all cultural backgrounds and identities. We celebrate everything in our school! My children have participated in sports and in after school specials as well as educational support when needed. They have absolutely everything they could ever want and need in a nurturing, supportive and happy environment. They have always received encouraging guidance allowing them to grow into their best selves. We love our school and wouldn’t want our children anywhere else!
