School Notes

  • Abundant Life Christian School History - Abundant Life Christian School was founded in 1978 as a community Christian school.  Our first graduating class was in 1985. ALCS was specifically organized to offer students academic excellence in a Christ-focused context. ALCS offers grades Kindergarten through 12th grade. 
  • Students -  Approximately 180 families from some 50 different churches in the greater Dane County area including metropolitan Madison and its surrounding communities are represented in the student body.  ALCS has a wide range of racial/ethnic and socio-economic diversity within our student body.
  • School Environment - ALCS offers large-school opportunities in a small-school setting.  With smaller class sizes, a warm and respectful atmosphere, and a student body representing a wide variety of different area churches, there is a familiar face around every corner.  
  • Campus - Our modern facility offers up-to-date classrooms, a library media center, science & two computer labs, an art room, band and music rooms, two gymnasiums, and a recently renovated weight room.  The 28-acre campus provides ample space for athletic fields, play areas, and available parking.   
  • Parents - ALCS nurtures the relationship between parent, child, and school.  Parent involvement is welcomed and encouraged.  We offer Family Portal, a secure intranet allowing parents web-based access to their student`s information and progress.  Family Portal allows families to manage their child`s personal information and emergency contacts as well as providing access to schedules, grades, and progress reports.  Family Portal allows parents to monitor their family`s lunch account as well as classroom web pages where teachers can post announcements, homework reminders, and other student/parent resources.
  • Faculty - Faculty members hold degrees at both undergraduate and graduate levels and are committed to providing quality Christian education.
