Annapolis Area Christian School (AACS) is an independent, Christian, college preparatory school with competitive athletics and outstanding fine arts in theatrical, musical, choral and visual arts. AACS partners with families in education that encourages a vital love for God, a commitment to academic excellence, and a dedication to service.  Our graduates are also graduates of many of the nation's leading colleges, universities and military academies. AACS faculty engage students in a rigorous college preparatory program of learning that is enhanced with electives, AP courses, and extracurricular activities. It’s not just education as usual with Bible classes tacked on.  What does it mean to live your faith?  We teach how to live a Christian life within our culture; how to apply a Biblical worldview to everything we do, preparing our students for a lifetime of learning and work within the Kingdom of God. Teachers at the Annapolis Area Christian School are hired not only because they are masters in their field, but also because their lives exemplify biblical wisdom and the love of Christ.
 We offer an excellent academic program while encouraging and modeling excellent character.

School Notes:

  • HIGH EXPECTATIONS: We have high expectations for our students. They are encouraged and expected to do their best, whether we’re talking about character development, academics, or other activities.  Our students learn the value of a strong work ethic and gain confidence as they set and achieve personal goals.  

    DEDICATED TO SERVICE: We teach and model the importance of service. 100% of our students participate in community service projects. TOP NOTCH TEACHERSJust as we have high expectations for our students, we also have high expectations for our teachers.  They each undergo a rigorous evaluation and interview process prior to being hired.  They must demonstrate their love for students and the art of teaching.  They must be masters in their field and their lives must exemplify biblical wisdom and the love of Christ.   

    CHRIST-CENTERED: It’s not just education as usual with Bible classes tacked on.  What does it mean to live your faith?  We teach how to live a Christian life within our culture; how to apply a Biblical worldview to everything we do, preparing our students for a lifetime of learning and work within the Kingdom of God. 

    COMPREHENSIVE: We value opportunity, diversity, & unique interests and talents.  Because each student is unique, we offer a comprehensive program of academics, fine arts, athletics, and extracurricular activities.  We are developing future artists, scientists, musicians, doctors, writers, teachers, athletes, accountants, and much more.  All of our students are exceptional at something and we help them discover that. 

    SAFE COMMUNITY: Our students learn and grow within a morally and spiritually safe community of friends, family, and faculty, with shared values.  

    CREATIVE: We prepare students for a constantly changing world by providing opportunity to collaborate, communicate, work as a team, and solve problems.  These are important skills and are woven into our entire program. 

    EXCELLENCE IN ACADEMICS – EXCELLENCE IN CHARACTER: We don’t only care about what they learn, we also care about who they become.  This requires a focus on all dimensions of our students; spiritual, mental, social, emotional, and physical.  Character development is equally important to academic development and we expect excellence in both dimensions from our students, faculty, and staff.
