There are many high schools that can lead you to the college of your choice. At Athenian, your high school years can be much more than that.
Athenian’s college preparatory curriculum is infused with hands-on learning experiences. Classes are small, lessons are interactive, and teachers serve as mentors and guides for students in their educational process. Our program is designed to create confident, creative, curious people who understand the wider world and seek to make a difference in it. We give our graduates the intellectual and interpersonal skills that help them thrive in a rapidly changing, increasingly global community. Students leave Athenian eager to build lives of purpose and personal fulfillment — in college, in careers, in their personal lives, and in every corner of the globe — from Danville to Darfur. At Athenian, you’ll find a unique integration of challenging academics, experiential education, and a strong and supportive learning community.
