Kasey Ehrenreich, Grant Brown, Christopher Thurmond, Sarah Elisabeth Thurmond, Madison Hall, Moira Lockwood, Daniel Fern, and alumna Katherine Lockwood all showed KINDNESS when they surprised Ms. T by coming to see the production of “A Christmas Carol” she directed. This support was most appreciated!

Athens Academy is pleased to offer on-campus, school-day SAT testing for current juniors on March 6, 2019. The college guidance team encourages all students to take the SAT at least once (preferably in the spring of their junior year), and this is an opportunity to do so in a familiar environment. Last year was the first time that Athens Academy students took the SAT on campus during a school day, and feedback was very positive.
WHAT: SAT with Essay (3 hours, 50 minutes, plus breaks)
WHO: current Athens Academy juniors
WHEN: Wednesday, March 6, 2019 from 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. This date has been designated as an Upper School conference day, so students taking the test will not miss any classes. They will simply need to schedule their conferences in the afternoon when the test is over. Students who choose not to take the SAT at Athens Academy will only be on campus that day for conferences.
WHERE: depending on the number of students who sign up, we will dedicate a building or an area of a building for optimal testing conditions (quiet, no distractions, ample space, etc.).
COST: $80 (payable via link below). Registration includes two test prep sessions to be scheduled prior to the test date.
REGISTRATION: students must sign up for the test no later than Tuesday, January 15, 2019. The deadline to request accommodations (if they are not already approved) is Friday, January 11, 2019. We cannot accept any late registrations.
