School Reviews

My students attended ACA for three years while we lived in Montgomery. It was an excellent experience for us all! My children have grown academically, spiritually and emotionally. We are so very thankful for the loving teachers we had during our time at ACA and the friends we made there!

I have three children who have attended ACA since kindergarten. It is an amazing school in every area and I would recommend it to anyone who desires a great education and a positive and safe environment for their child. The faculty truly cares about student academically and spiritually.

One of my children has graduated and gone on to be successful in college, thanks to ACA''s college-prep goals. The other is in high school now. My child is safe and is getting a sound education. We care most about the Christian environment.
