Students at American Christian receive more than an education.
They receive insight and experiences that are unique to our program.  It is a different environment, one that develops spiritual growth and a closer walk with God.
It is a different culture where faculty, staff, and students know and care about each other.
It is a different school where learning happens inside and outside of the classroom.
An education is important, but our teachers want more than that for your child.
They want them to succeed spiritually, academically, socially, and athletically.
They want to prepare them for college, but more importantly, for life. Our Mission Statement: American Christian Academy exists as a partnership with parents to instill Christian character and academic excellence.
