ACS is an excellent school. My kids have been here since preschool and are now in high school. When given the choice to go elsewhere for high school, they chose to stay at ACS without hesitation. It is like a family or a second home. They never want to miss school or be late and they love staying after.

ACS has been a tremendous blessing to our family. It truly is a place where you are welcomed & included in your child's education. They have an excellent teaching staff & classical curriculum & have recently acquired a full HS to 12th grade. They offer many extra curricular activities like Archery, Track, Basketball, Fencing & Golf. Above all things & most importantly everything is Christ-centered & you just know the Lord's hand is on this place. I couldn't ask for a better environment for my children!

American Christian School has been such a blessing to our family. My child is not just another number at ACS. She is part of a family that is fully invested in, not only her academics, but her emotional and social well being as well. It is my prayer that more families would consider ACS for their children.

How Diverse Are Private Schools?
Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
