We could not be more happier with avcs. It is a wonderful school to send out children every day and the environment is full of love and happiness. We have nothing but good things to say about our school. If you are looking to tour do so on a Friday and experience chapel!!

This school is TRULY a Christ centered school. I have witness the amazing grace of God here especially in the last two weeks. The school, the parents, the staff, the pastors, and students have shown an amazing outpouring of love for those in need. This is what a Christian School is all about. My children have been going here for the past eight years and I'm so honored to be part of this Christian community.
