Athens Education


Athenians’ thirst for knowledge is apparent from the public and private schools that offer exceptional education for the city’s youth to the colleges and universities that are nationally and internationally known and respected.

The University of Georgia, which was founded in 1785 as the nation’s first chartered land-grant university, is a symbol of intellectual innovation, diversity, and performance and shows the nation how greatly higher education is esteemed among the city’s population.

The quest for knowledge and personal excellence can be seen in the entire population from students to senior citizens. With an unparalleled level of quality offered by both public and private institutions, no matter your age, you are never far away from bettering yourself through academic success.
