We are a Class D member of the Michigan High School Athletic Association and part of the Big 8 Athletic Conference. Our elementary and high school both excel academically and in a number of other areas, as well, including Youth in Government, civic education and service learning, and student journalism. Our MEAP scores ranked per grade level and subject put us first in Calhoun ISD.
The Athens Area Schools are dedicated to helping all students achieve their full academic potential.
The historical arch at the entrance to the football field and track was reconstructed from the 1910 Athens school.
