I have 3 kids... 1 of them graduated from 8th. grade, she is now is HS, another one in 7th grade and 4 grade... We have been part of ACA for the pass 4 years and it has been the best decision we as parents could have made, for such affordable tuition, it is a small environment where every child is treated individually, every child can advanced at their own speed because the education is almost personalize, the school curriculum is different, they learn not just math and reading, they also learn from k-4 about sciences, health, social study, geography, and most important they learn every day about God and his wonderful world and plans for us, in ACA I feel like my kids are with family, they are in a healthy and safety environment. "ACA best decision ever"

I have 3 children that attend ACA. They have grown spiritually and academically. The school family is close and the older kids assist in nurturing the younger children. My children look forward to going to school each day and they never want to leave at the end of the day. If you are considering our school, I would encourage you to come and speak to the staff and visit the campus. I am sure you will realize that this school is the place for your children too.

I am an ACA alumni, class of 1989, and I am thrilled to have my child attending ACA. He is well above grade average, as is most of the kids. He is part of a small family, where all of the kids love and help each other out. The teachers are wonderful and have helped nurture my child's love for Christ. I would encourage any parent to come visit ACA and see what we're all about.

Our daughter has attended ACA since K4. and is now in her 10th grade year. Over the years, the teachers have all been so dedicated to quality education while keeping the central theme Christ-focused. She has excelled in every way. It's been the best decision we could have made.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
