Thank you to all who participated in our 5-year AdvancED (SACS) accreditation process. Oglethorpe County Schools will be accredited for another five years: 2015-2020. We are very proud of our school system!


The Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones) is a comprehensive summative assessment program spanning grades 3 through high school.  Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.  Students in grades 3 through 8 will take an end-of-grade assessment in each content area, while high school students will take an end-of-course assessment for each of the eight courses designated by the State Board of Education.

Features the Georgia Milestone Assessment System include:

  • open-ended (constructed-response) items in language arts and mathematics (all grades and courses)
  • a writing component (in response to passages read by students) at every grade level and course within the language arts assessment
  • norm-referenced items in all content areas and courses, to complement the criterion-referenced information and to provide a national comparison
  • transition to online administration over time, with online administration considered the primary mode of administration and paper-penc‚Äčil as back-up until the transition is complete
