School Notes:

Athens Christian Academy does not discriminate on the basis of national or ethnic origin, race, or color in administration of its educational policies, financial aid programs, or other school administered programs.  The Christian learning environment is the number one reason parents send their children to the academy.  Parents understand that it is more important than ever to include moral character developement as an elementary principle in their child's education. When Christianity is integrated into the educational process, the emphasis goes far beyond test scores.  In this atmospere, there are fewer discipline problems, and that translates into more time for learning.  Students reach a higher level of academic achievement at the acadmy.
