School Reviews

  • Recommended December 11, 2012 - I am so happy with ACA. This is the school if your child is struggling or is not being challenged. It is a home schooling program with in a school. The kids feel safe and secure in this environment. They are able to grow spiritually and academically in the way that God created them to be. You will be very pleased if you take a tour and meet the students and staff at ACA. I have peace in knowing that my children are being loved and taught at the academic level that is right for them. - Posted by Parent
