I would not have my children anywhere else. The faculty truly love the students and pray for them regularly. The classes are quite rigorous and will prepare my kids for college.

I have experienced Athens Christian as a teacher and a parent. ACS has had a profound effect on our family especially in the family atmosphere that has helped our family through some difficult times in our family's ministry. Our children were also prepared well for college.

From preschool to high school, ACS provides quality curriculum in a Christian environment to prepare all students for college and the real world.

My children have had a great experience at Athens Christian in an atmosphere of excellence. They are given opportunities to become involved in the community and give back. Academically, the teachers engage students, challenging them to become the best version of themselves. My children have received many academic as well as extra-curricular opportunities in college because of the level of education they received during their time at ACS.

My son received a quality education at Athens Christian School. I wanted him to be taught in a Christian environment, but I also desired a quality education that would prepare him for college. ACS provided that. I am very satisfied with the school and with my son's experiences there.

Athens Christian School is a well rounded educational establishment. They have a fantastic faculty and staff team, that instill a Biblical world-view in the students. ACS has a strong family involvement. Athletics, fine arts, as well as aesthetics are available and encouraged. ACS students and teachers have the freedom to pray and share the gospel daily. I highly recommend Athens Christian School.

Athens Christian is such a welcoming environment. Kids get to participate in all the extracurriculars of a big school but still get to be part of a tight-knit community.

This is a great school with a solid Biblical foundation. It does an outstanding job of training up students to use their gifts and talents - academically, athletically, artistically, musically. For a school this size it has amazing opportunities. Excellent teachers who care and small class sizes are key for success.

After teaching in the public school system for many years, it is a breath of fresh air to be able to make the students think again. We do not just teach a test that will make the school system look successful. The students are held accountable for their successes.
