About Augusta Prep

Welcome to Augusta Prep!
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.

Honor Code
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.
