Annapolis Area Christian School (AACS), founded in 1971, is an independent, Christian day school that concentrates on preparing students for college and for life. AACS currently enrolls nearly 900 students in grades Pre-K to 12th grade.
AACS has grown into a robust community of learning that is setting the standard for Christian education in the Baltimore/Washington corridor.
. . The AACS lower school is located at Ridgely Road in Annapolis, the middle school is located on Bestgate Road in Annapolis and the Upper School is located in Severn, Maryland.
The AACS mission: We engage students in an education of excellence enabling them to impact the world through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. .
AACS faculty engage students in a rigorous college preparatory program of learning that is enhanced with electives.
AACS student life is one that partners a strong academic program with an appreciation of the arts and a competitive athletic program.
The AACS Upper School includes academic buildings as well as the Kerr Center for the Arts and the Kilby Athletic Center. These facilities enhance our fine arts offerings, our sports program activities, and provide for a culture-center in the community.
AACS Upper School offers 10 AP courses, many opportunities to participate in after school extracurricular activities with over 12 current clubs, and a competitive athletic program.
In partnership with Sevenstar Academy, AACS also offers an on-line curriculum that supplements and strengthens AACS current course offerings. AACS online classes provides students with greater scheduling flexibility and the opportunity to take courses that the current onsite curriculum may not accomodate such as AP Art History, Chinese and Latin, and second-year calculus.
As an extension to the AACS academic program, AACS also offers an Educational Support Program accredited through the National Institute for Learning Development. In partnership with AACS faculty at all three campuses educational support staff see that students with unique learning needs are accommodated and supported. . ..
99% of AACS students attend college. AACS graduates have been accepted at and have graduated from many of the nation’s leading colleges, universities, and military academies.
