Congratulations to senior John Ferguson for being named SPARTAN OF THE WEEK
John led the offensive charge for the Spartans series sweep of Loganville Christian. He had six hits, four runs scored and three RBI in the series. John is respected for his ability and his unceasing commitment to his teammates. He epitomizes the Athens Academy motto of Excellence with Honor with his tremendous leadership and work ethic. We are very proud of John and we have thoroughly enjoyed working with him!” – Casey Kane, Head Coach, Varsity Baseball

If you need the links to the at-home or return request forms, please email Ms. Rorey: Remember that you should expect to wait 24 hours before you are approved by the school. Therefore, do not submit the request late in the evening or early in the morning and assume that you will immediately have permission to attend online or return to school. Thank you!


Please help us stay healthy so we can continue to be together!


Thank you so much for being diligent about wearing your masks! A few of you are still having trouble and for clarification, here is the process for you:
1. A faculty member will give you a warning.
2. After the warning, that faculty member will infract you and you will serve detention. This will be communicated to your parents as well.
3. After you serve detention, if another infraction occurs, you, your advisor, and your parents will meet with Mrs. Zalac and there will be escalated consequences.

Clubs meet Wednesdays 9:15-9:45! Look out for an email from your club leaders!
