There were over 35 Groups to choose from and sign up for, when students joined this year's Kick-Off the Activities, Clubs, and Interest Groups on Wednesday, September 29th. Activities and clubs were formed on topics ranging from literature, math, arts, journalism, dance, sports, and the yearbook. Students also signed up for the Model United Nations, Forensics, Academic Competitions, Community Service, Leadership Development, etc.

The Citizenship Office every year encourages all students to participate in Interest Groups / Activities that foster their involvement in the ACS Athens Community as well as enrich their academic, social, and other skills leading to a greater maturity and personal development. Academy students signed-up for one or more of their favorite activities as a way to pursue their personal creative interests; many such groups will result in exhibits or works that are showcased at the end of the year.
