A healthy Christian learning environment
Grades K-12


The purpose of ACS is to provide our students with a healthy Christian learning environment with a focus on academic excellence and a positive social culture.

We desire to minister to the needs of the whole child and to promote his spiritual and moral growth, academic and intellectual achievement, and physical and social development.

ACS uses quality biblically integrated curriculum from A Beka Books, Bob Jones University Press, and ACSI.

ACS students are expected to adhere to the ROPE Standard of Excellence:

R - Respect

O - Obedience

P - Participation

E - Effort

Using the ROPE students will climb to achieve the heights of personal excellence!
