“Addison has started off her senior season by playing some great volleyball!  She has led our team to a 10-0 start with strong performances on offense and defense.  She is our team motivator and has a great attitude.  We are looking forward to a great season with Addison as our leader! Go Spartans!” – Jane Thomas, Head Coach, Varsity Volleyball

This is a great article shared from Mr. Thorsen:
 
 
Please continue to be diligent about wearing your masks! We want to keep our community safe and be together in person!

 
SAT at ACAD for Seniors: 
Athens Academy has made arrangements to offer the SAT (without essay) to Athens Academy seniors on Wednesday, October 13. This is the same day when sophomores and juniors take the PSAT, so you will not have to miss school to take this test.  Students have reported in recent years that the convenience and familiarity of testing at school have benefited them.  We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to improve your scores as college application deadlines approach. 

 

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER (Registration deadline is September 8, 2021)


Chromebook Reminder

Please do not put stickers on your computers, other students will be using them after you. Thank you!


TAKE NOTE, SENIORS:

Don’t forget that Senior College Night takes place TONIGHT at 7:00 pm. We will meet in person in the Bertelsmann Presentation Hall to make some important announcements and to discuss the college application process at Athens Academy.

One parent should come with you – yes, Senior, you should attend!


Late Start

Each Wednesday, you (all grades!) get to sleep in a little! Your first class starts at 8:45 instead of 8:10. You must be in your class and ready to go at 8:45. If you are late, you need to sign in with the QR Code.

You are more than welcome to be here earlier! If you do arrive before 8:45, just sign in with a QR Code in a common space, Deans’ office or at the front desk. You may hang out in any common space or the library.


Tillman Center Announcement:

Upper School Students are not allowed in the Tillman Center when Middle School Students are using it. Middle School finishes lunch at 11:55. Most of the time there are many Upper School Students either going in or lined up right at the door, waiting to get in before 11:55. PLEASE do not be on the ramp going down to the Tillman Center. Wait in Lampkin Plaza, go wash your hands and grab your lunch. Let’s give the Middle School Students room to leave! Thank you for your help with this!

Please wear your mask when you go into the Tillman Center and while you wait in line. You may take it off when you get to your seat to eat.


Tillman Center Snacks Available during these times:

Monday: 9:45-10:10
Tuesday: 9:45-10:10
Wednesday: 10:10-10:30
Thursday: 9:45-10:20
Friday: 9:45-10:10
