Athens has a proud athletic tradition that dates back almost a century. Because of this rich heritage, becoming a Golden Eagle athlete is a goal of many students. Organized athletics offer students a structured group in which to be involved and learn many important life lessons about teamwork, sportsmanship and perseverance. Learn more about our student athletes here.
Service is a big part of student life in Athens and very important in helping students develop a sense of connection to the school and community. Students at all grade levels give back to the community in a variety of ways. To read more about our students in service, click here.
