Good Morning Kelly, Athens Academy is a great private institution though not affordable for everyone. As mentioned below Oconee County is in close proximity to Athens and is well known for their school system, also consider Jefferson City Schools which score high and have a similar reputation and proximity to Athens. However in my opinion without considering the age of your children you do have options in Clarke as well. I myself think that parent involvement is key to any child's development and growth no matter the school or location.

Understand your concerns. My ReMax office is in Athens. I live in Watkinsville(Oconee County) an adjacent community, because we have two boy's. We are there because, they have the best public schools. I went to a private school in another city in GA, because the schools were not at the standard that my parents wanted. Please feel free to call me at your convenience. I will include my contact info below. Know that you have some tough decisions ahead.

Best Regards,

Athens is a great town. I have enclosed a link in web references below that may prove useful, Kelly, in comparing educational opportunities. Please make sure if you are looking at private schools, however, that you contrast with other private facilities. My wife graduated from Clarke Central back in the mid-70’s and my eldest taught at Clarke Middle in 2005. Feel free to call or email if I might help further. Good Luck!
