The best place for you to be on campus before your first scheduled class is one of the common upper school areas (preferably outside) while monitoring appropriate physical distancing practices. 

Please remember that anyone leaving or returning to campus at any time for any reason needs to have parent permission. You can use the link below to sign in and out but parent validation is required. Parents may also use the link below.

SPECIAL UPDATE**Neck gaiters will no longer be permitted to be used as a face covering at school.  You are welcome to use them around town, but on campus we would prefer face coverings. We are sorry to share this news, but it is based on honest feedback from multiple healthcare professionals in the Academy family as well as a recent study done at Duke University. The study found that neck gaiters were actually more detrimental than no face covering at all.**

Happy Birthday

Core Values


Athens Academy Students and Teachers showed KINDNESS, TEAMWORK, PASSION, COURAGE and RESPECT by wearing masks, washing hands, watching your distance and completing your wellness checks!


The Boys and Girls Club is starting back up this year virtually!  They need volunteers to help with creating fun online games as well as managing the kids in groups as they play!  We were thinking about kahoots, pictionary, and other online group games!  The kids will be in the 1st-5th grades and these will primarily take place on Wednesday’s from 4:15-5:15!  There will be about 20-25 kids in a group. If you are interested please let McKenzie Elrod or Alex Oh know because we want to get a rough list of volunteers as soon as possible so we can start working on fun things for the kids to do!

Attention Juniors and Seniors!

Athens Academy is partnering, for the second year, with the Department of Advertising and Public Relations in the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia to offer select internships to juniors and seniors.

Play Information!

Auditions for this year’s Fall “play” will be held this Wednesday- Friday starting at 3:45 pm in the PH. Each auditionee will sign up for a 12-minute slot.  An audition sign-up sheet will be posted today on the double doors at the end of the Bertlesmann turnaround driveway right under the stairs that lead to my classroom.   Please do not hang out before or after your audition time.  BE SAFE!

The play is a monologue play about the boxes we are put in by society, gender, ourselves. It was written by alumna, Kendall Sherwood.  Kendall currently works as a writer and producer for the TV show “Hawaii 5’O”.

This play is SO timely!  Due to COVID, this year’s production will be like none other. Everyone is welcome to audition.  Home learners, those involved in other activities, everyone.  Since the play will not be performed live… we are moving another direction completely.  If you have ever been interested in being in the fall play… now is your opportunity!  Rehearsals will be limited and will take place during the school day, after school, and over zoom.  The time commitment has never been so little.  Please, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

If you would like a script e-mailed to you, email me and I will send you one!
