Life Student Life Student life at Athenian is focused around three core character values; Respect, Responsibility and Ready to Learn. The Athenian Academy takes pride in character education. Our students are held to a high standard of behavior and are rewarded for their efforts. The 3R Club is our school-wide character education program. Criteria for participation is clearly defined and sent home at the beginning of each school year. Special events for the 3R club are held for those students meeting the school-wide criteria and classroom criteria. Our wonderful PTA is a vital part in providing these rewards to our students.

Student Life Student life at Athenian Academy Charter School is safe, fun and challenging Safe The Athenian Academy has a small campus which allows a greater degree of safety. We have a weapon free, drug free and bully free campus. Recordable security cameras are installed in the hallways, near entry doors and inside several classrooms. The controlled environment, along with our caring and dedicated staff allows a greater degree of individual attention to every student. Our students are held to a strict standard of behavior which creates a safe and productive learning environment. The Athenian Academy uniform policy also creates an environment which promotes a non competitive environment, which allows students to focus on learning rather than social status. Fun The Athenian Academy staff and administration believes that school should be fun. Throughout the year, we offer a variety of educational field trips; recess up through grade three, special events and after school activities. Students at Athenian Academy can participate in Greek Chorus, Greek dancing, Zumba classes, art club as well as a variety of other fun events. Challenging Academic achievement is a priority at Athenian Academy. Unlike many traditional public schools, Athenian Academy has the ability to individualize student curriculum based upon student ability. In more traditional schools, the same text book is used for every student, leaving gaps for students who may be struggling or students who are able to excel beyond the standard curriculum. Athenian Academy is different, we use a variety of text books and curriculum types to meet the needs of the individual student abilities. Athenian Academy offers three levels of instruction: Struggling students are placed in small group, or one to one instruction groups two or three times a week outside the classroom setting. The purpose of this small group instruction is to allow students the opportunity to catch up and meet grade level expectations. The standard curriculum is designed to push students to a greater degree of ability. The advanced curriculum is challenging and allows our students to move ahead of the standard curriculum, at the middle school level, students are offered advanced classes, allowing them the opportunity to receive high school credit while in middle school.
