Athens Christian High School is a college preparatory environment that seeks to train the whole student.  As Jesus increased in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man (Luke 2:52), we believe that we are training each student to grow academically (wisdom), physically (stature), spiritually (favor with God), and in character and reputation (favor with man). The curriculum of ACS is designed to meet these goals.

Students must have at least 26 credits (28 for advanced diploma) to graduate.  In addition to the core classes, students must have 3 elective credits including one fine art credit.
