As both a parent and a member of the faculty, I can say that the teachers really view this job as a mission. They love and pray for the kids. Two of my kids have graduated from ACS (and are currently attending UGA), and I have 3 more in the middle and high school. It has been a great fit for our family!

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.

Athens Christian School is a wonderful school! The teachers genuinely care about our children. From preschool to high school, ACS provides quality curriculum in a Christian environment to prepare all students for college and the real world. There is no other place we would want to send our children!

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.

ACS offers quality academic programs, a great variety of extracurricular activities, and a Christian worldview, all of which prepare students for life after graduation. The administrators and teachers at ACS are like a family. They care for one another and the students they serve. Athens Christian School is the best choice for any parent looking for a quality education in a Christian environment!

We are in our 3rd year at ACS and absolutely love it! Would highly recommend to anyone looking into a private school!

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.
