The Mentor Program is designed to enable high-ability students to explore their intellectual and achievement based strengths by engaging in self-designed projects and explorations under the supervision of an adult Mentor who shares their talents and interests. Students and Mentors will be responsible for designing a “curriculum” that will challenge, promote learning, foster creativity, and develop innovation and critical thought in the vast facets of our world today.
The Mentor Program Exhibition, held each year in May, showcases the diverse project and learning that has taken place during this experience. Students and Mentors welcome visitors at the ACS Athens Atrium and Theater Lobby and explain their process, their learning and passion for their chosen topic.).
