A wonderful school where my children attended from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Great, relational teachers who care about their students. Excellent athletics, and diverse fine arts programs. A wide variety of extra-curricular activities and a family-oriented atmosphere.

My son has attended ACS since kindergarten and is now going into his sophomore year. ACS is not just his school, but our family. This has been the greatest investment I could have ever given my child. I highly recommend ACS. The teachers and staff invest into each student, not just academically, but also personally. The students mentor and hold each other accountable to be God's best. They are dual certified and the students leaving ACS are attending schools like Harvard, Cairn, Liberty, Seton Hall, and The George Washington University. We also have students who leave and go right into the mission field. Their passion and God's purpose for their lives is developed here.
