ACA is an outstanding school! I am excited about its tremendous growth and the resources it makes available for its students. They do an excellent job of combining the academic, spiritual and social components into the student's everyday experience. The teachers have an open and caring collaboration. The campus is warm friendly and inviting.ACA was one of Raleigh`s secrets but the word is getting out and enrollment is skyrocketing!

I am a parent of two children who attended ACA. My son graduated in 2021 and my daughter is currently in the 8th grade at ACA. The staff and board members of ACA opened their hearts and doors to give my children an opportunity of being part of a school culture that embraces the fundamentals of creating lifelong learners. Their public school experience became difficult with the bullying. Their Christian education experience has created a pathway to a future that I could not do alone. My kids are confident in their academics and who they are as individuals. The leaders and teachers consistently push students to make their best better. I`m a proud parent of two ACA children and ACA rocks!

ACA is an amazing school! I have two kids that attend ACA one graduated in 2021 and the other child is still there in eighth grade. The board members heard the story of my kids being bullied in public school and open the doors for them to attend ACA. Both of my children have experienced academic and spiritual growth since being at ACA. They understand what it means to put God first in all that they do. The teachers and staff are dedicated to assuring each child are provided with a wholesome education. The educational, spiritual, and social-emotional components are embedded in the teachings at ACA. My kids are certainly on the pathway to becoming productive citizens. I`m extremely grateful for the Administrative team and teachers who work tirelessly to assure the students are prepared to not just meet state testing standards but achieve above state standards. ACA is not too small or too big it`s the perfect size to embrace all students individually. I`m a proud parent of two ACA students.

ACA is an excellent school! When we relocated to the area we were very nervous about our children's education. We explored ACA and it has been 3 years. Every day I confirm that we made the right decision. The academic level is one of excellence. Due to the quality and comprehensive education they provide, my son was able to test out a grade and my daughter was taking advanced/honor classes. When it was time for my daughter to transition to another school for 11th grade (not currently offered at ACA), the new school did a placement test and reported that my daughter scored in the 90th percentile in Language and the 97th percentile in Math. Her transcript is very well rounded".I can't say enough about the amazing teachers. So caring and dedicated! They love what they do and they love my children. I highly recommend ACA to anyone looking for a great school.

I have had my children at this school for many years. The teachers and the staff are amazing. Most of them have advanced degrees and honestly LOVE my children. Education is VERY important to my husband and me and we are pleased with the quality of education at this school. They offer 2 Robotics teams that have won several national awards. My children are advanced for their grade level and I continue to be pleased with their academic performance. They are in the process of building a STEM lab and I am looking forward to my kids learning coding and engineering.

I have three children who have attended this school for 7 years. My children have lots of friends because all the children are so friendly. During the pandemic, this school didn't miss a beat, they were prepared and ready for the challenge. They already had Chromebooks so our kids never missed 1 day of school work. It is a family-friendly environment and I appreciate how compassionate the teachers are.

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.
