Thank you for visiting our website – a window into the many facets that make Augusta Prep such a remarkable school. As the new Head of School for Augusta Prep, I enter the 2015-2016 school year with much excitement, looking forward to seeing our school live out its mission daily by providing the highest quality college preparatory education in the area’s only non-sectarian, independent school. Both our very youngest students and our proud seniors thrive within a program that provides a balance of age- and developmentally-appropriate rigor and support amid an atmosphere of diversity of background, ideas, and ethnicities represented in our world. Through small classes and flexible programs, talented and committed teachers provide individual attention to help each student achieve his or her academic best. Our motto, “To be, rather than to seem,” describes this community of doers who work together to make the world a better place.
Head of School
Augusta Preparatory Day School
285 Flowing Wells Rd, Martinez, GA
As a member of the student body at Augusta Preparatory Day School, I will not lie, cheat, nor tolerate such behavior by my fellow students. At all times I will conduct myself honorably and with courtesy and respect toward others
It is not only the academic rigor that distinguishes Augusta Prep from other schools, but also the commitment to honor and integrity. Opportunities to develop character and self-respect regularly present themselves to students. Augusta Prep employs an honor code, which demands nobility among the student body, and it is this nobility that encourages both respect and responsibility. The honor code allows teachers and students both freedoms not found elsewhere. Teachers may leave the room during a test, or give a take-home assignment with a confidence that students will be honest. Students of all grade levels earn additional privileges through demonstration of responsibility and academic performance.
The Augusta Prep family welcomes students from diverse racial, cultural, religious, and economic backgrounds. We offer a rich and rigorous curriculum designed to stimulate critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, and academic achievement in a world increasingly without borders. We encourage students to test themselves in athletic competitions and to give expression to their artistic abilities. We cultivate in all members of our community high personal expectations and integrity, an understanding of how diversity enriches us, why stewardship of the environment matters, and why service to others enhances life. Above all we seek to be a school that nurtures a passion for learning and teaches students “how to think, not what to think.”
1. Students are the focal point of the school. We provide each child the opportunity to achieve academic, artistic, and athletic success, develop leadership skills, and assume community responsibility.
2. Our teachers and staff are vital to our success. We provide an environment where they can achieve their fullest potential through professional development. We strive to provide competitive compensation.
3. A quality education involves a partnership between home, school, and community.
4. We instill our students with the values of interdependency, respect, and responsibility for self and others.
5. Our students promote community well-being and development through active responsible involvement.
6. We equip our graduates for college and beyond.
7. We must be responsive to the changing demands of our world in order to achieve our mission.
