ACA is the Best Christian School in Montgomery, Alabama. We moved here from Chicago and we could not have placed our 3 daughters into a better school. The Teachers and Staff love our kids unconditionally. We Love ACA!!

I had two children attend ACA from K-5 - graduation. My children were very active in sports, clubs and community and loved it. They were very prepared for their college experience. I love the fact that the school stresses Christian values and you are able to talk freely about Jesus.

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.
