Our Mission

Our Mission

Augusta Preparatory Day School develops the intellect, talents, and character of each student in a diverse, college-preparatory, non-sectarian, and welcoming community of life-long learners.

We are committed to educating well-rounded, engaged students who embrace personal responsibility, global perspective, and service to others.

Our Philosophy

The Augusta Prep family is a nurturing community of 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 competition 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 instills a genuine lifelong love of learning and teaches students “how to think, not what to think.”

Core Beliefs

Augusta Preparatory Day School is an independent, college preparatory school serving children ages 2 through Grade 12 from the greater Augusta-Aiken area. Augusta Prep seeks to enroll a group of diverse students. We follow an open admission policy, whereby qualified candidates are admitted without regard to religion, race, nationality, economic background, or ethnic origin.
