We offer a number of athletic opportunities. Our teams are competitive in both the county and the state, and currently Athens Bible School has a total of 10 state championships and 19 state runners-up. The students are held to a high standard of sportsmanship that is noticed and respected by our community.  Athens Bible School is 1 of only 5 schools in the state of Alabama to have been awarded the AHSAA Sportsmanship award for 4 straight years.

The students are offered a broad spectrum of both in-school and extracurricular activities, including clubs, student government, and enriching on-hands learning opportunities to participate in together. Through both their education and extra-curricular opportunities, the students build friendships that will last.

At the heart of our mission is the desire to train our students to love the Lord and be obedient to His Word. To this end, ABS offers daily Bible classes for all students. Students also participate in a daily chapel assembly, which provides the opportunity to reflect on a message from God's word as well as to sing and pray every morning.

Athens Bible School has much to offer: the tradition and experience that comes with sixty-five years of service to the students and the community, and the natural excitement of children who love their school, where they are sure to receive a “Better Education on a Better Foundation!”
