Upper School

Welcome

Welcome! Come see why we’re the preferred private Upper School in Augusta, Georgia!

I am excited and honored to enter another great school year at Augusta Prep as the Head of Upper School. It is clear this is a place where each day brings new chances to celebrate the effort and progress of students and faculty alike as we strive together for continuous growth toward excellence in academics, arts, athletics, and community leadership pursuits.
From our challenging curriculum to the myriad opportunities to engage and grow beyond the classroom, the Upper School community is dedicated to providing a personalized, balanced, and innovative experience in which all are invited to develop their intellect, talents, and character.  
Our results speak for themselves: unparalleled SAT, ACT, and AP scores, outstanding artistic expressions and productions, impressive athletic achievements, and overwhelming satisfaction with our best-fit college placement process. Beyond these facts and figures, an important strength of the Upper School experience is found in the immediate sense of community, collaboration, and care one has upon entering these lively halls. Among other elements, our small class sizes and grade-specific Advisory Program support the relationships that allow our students and faculty to achieve great things. The Upper School is a place where each student is known, valued, and challenged to be his or her best self.

There is no better way to feel (and enjoy!) this energy than visiting us here in the Upper School. Whether you are already a part of the Prep family or are considering joining in, my door is always open, and I look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
