  • Student Spotlight

    Meet Elle Power, a third grade blended student at ARS. For Elle, it's not homeschooling; it's schooling at home. While every student is unique, Elle's story is a terrific example of what blended learning can look like for elementary aged students. We are grateful to her family for sharing. Read her story here.

  • Scantron Performance is a State Mandated Assessment that is administered three times a year in our school district. We will be administering the third assessment April 16 through April 19, with make up days April 23 and 24th. This assessment is required for all Athens Renaissance students and will provide valuable insight into your student’s progress this year.  It is important that your student is present on his or her scheduled testing day.


    Since the ARS building will be a testing site from April 16 - 19.  Students have permission to work from home on days they are not scheduled to test. Regular school schedule will resume April 23 as well as make-up testing.


    Students need to be on campus by 8:30. Testing will begin promptly at 9:00. Please ensure that your student is well rested and has eaten a good breakfast. Students will need to either order a school lunch or bring a lunch from home on their scheduled testing day because they will be on site all day.
