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.

Athens Christian offers five advanced placement courses for which students may earn college credit provided they score well on the AP exams. As noted in the curriculum, these courses are offered in US History, American Government, Calculus, Grammar and Composition, and Literature and Composition. 

To supplement the advanced diploma, Athens Christian School has partnered with Truett McConnell University to offer high school and college dual credit for students who qualify and who are interested in taking course for college credit.  Sophomores and juniors with a 3.7 GPA and seniors with a 3.5 GPA may apply to take up to two credits each semester for dual credit. These courses are offered online form TMU, so the students do not have to leave campus to complete coursework.  Courses are available to supplement or replace courses in the advanced program.
