About Pre-K in Athens City Schools
Preparing children for success begins early. Athens City Schools offers two Pre-K programs, and both are housed at Athens Elementary School. One is the Alabama First Class Pre-K Program and the second is known as the Eagles Nest.
The Alabama First Class Pre-K is a tuition-free program providing effective, high-quality early childhood experiences that prepare children for school success and lifelong learning. The second option is the Eagle's Nest, a tuition-based inclusive program that incorporates a mixture of exceptional needs students in a classroom with their traditional peers.
