School Reviews

  • Recommended July 03, 2013 - An amazing school staffed by talented teachers. Each of my children love going to this school. It has been a place where they are challenged academically, spiritually and socially. I believe my children will be better prepared to find success in college and in life because they have attended ACS. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended May 02, 2013 - ACS has been a tremendous blessing to our family. It truly is a place where you are welcomed & included in your child''s education. They have an excellent teaching staff & classical curriculum & have recently acquired a full HS to 12th grade. They offer many extra curricular activities like Archery, Track, Basketball, Fencing & Golf. Above all things & most importantly everything is Christ-centered & you just know the Lord''s hand is on this place. I couldn''t ask for a better environment for my children! - Posted by Parent

  • Recommended March 16, 2012 - American Christian School has been such a blessing to our family. My child is not just another number at ACS. She is part of a family that is fully invested in, not only her academics, but her emotional and social well being as well. It is my prayer that more families would consider ACS for their children. - Posted by Parent
