Approximately 80 colleges visit AGS from August to November. In an effort to make visits more accessible, the Office of College Counseling is hosting mini college fairs with up to five colleges. Visits are held daily during lunch, except Wednesdays, and are open to ALL Upper School students. The college visit calendar is accessible to all on Blackbaud. We hope that students will take advantage of this opportunity to learn about a variety of colleges.
The Community Trust Agreement is a revered tradition at AGS where all Middle and Upper School students will sign our school’s honor code. With their signature, the students agree to act and treat others in a way that represents the values and standards that we uphold at AGS. Please join us on the morning of Wednesday, August 21st to be a part of this special event.
Please call 404-845-0900 or email the front desk by 8:30 a.m. if your child is going to be late or needs to be picked up early. Students arriving after 11:30 a.m. are considered ineligible for extra-curricular activities. Aftercare is available until 6:00 p.m., except on half days where there will be no aftercare available and the building will close at noon. On normal school days, the building closes at 6:00 p.m. Check Blackbaud regularly for the most updated information.

The Office of College Counseling will host Senior College Night for seniors and parents (one or both) on Wednesday, August 21 at 5:30 p.m. in the Horizon Center.
