    We are happy you have chosen to enroll your child in Athens City Schools. This is a very important step in your child's future, and we are confident you will be proud that you selected Athens City Schools.

    Beginning fall 2018, our four elementary schools, the Athens Academies, opened to students in grades K-3 and provide students with an enriched school experience in preparation for advancing grade levels. Students are surrounded by teachers who are passionate about teaching meaningful content via processes that support student engagement. They are also taught by specialists whose love of art, music, and sports is unmistakably in every lesson. During your time at any of our elementary academies, you will share many memorable events that will support your important role as the main influencer of your child's education. Athens City School teachers view themselves as partners in the challenging and satisfying work that you have in raising your children. The staff of each school is eager to support you and your child in every way possible.

    Application may be made to attend any of the Athens Academies, regardless of zoning:

    • iAcademy at Athens Elementary Computer Science Academy
    • FAME at Brookhill Fine Arts Academy
    • HEART Academy at Julian Newman Health & Medical Academy
    • SPARK Academy at Cowart STEM Academy

    To assist you as you register your child in kindergarten, we provide the tools you need and detailed instructions to complete registration.
