Agnes Scott College - Virtual Tour

welcome image

Agnes Scott College is a transformative place; a place where scholarship, leadership, and global engagement aren’t just valued, but a fundamental part of our culture. That’s why we created SUMMIT. It’s our signature approach to the liberal arts that prepares every student--regardless of major--to be an effective and honorable leader in a global society. We do that on our beautiful, 100+ acre campus in Decatur, GA (right outside of Atlanta). Ready to take a peek? Join us for a virtual tour route for a first look.
