Imagine a School Built on Parent Partnership

A place where parent voices are heard and valued. A place where teachers are committed to providing the highest intellectual standards.

A classroom where lessons are both academic and spiritual. A safe, stimulating environment where students’ opinions and input are valued and encouraged. A place where your child will grow into an articulate defender of Christian truth while reaching their utmost academic potential.

That place is not only real, but local. We are American Christian School.

“ACS Changed Our Lives…”

Parent of a 4th Grader

We have been at ACS since our daughter was in PreK4 and just love the school. Because the class sizes are small the children are able to build and maintain strong relationships with the teachers, administrators, and most importantly their peers. This allows for the kids/administration to truly be there for each other, to encourage, praise, guide, support, and love one another. As parents, (if you are able) there is opportunity to get involved with the school via class parties, field trips, service projects, sports activities, fine arts program. I love that the children learn through the classical Christian education. They are surrounded by peers and faculty that love God and strive to live a Christian life. Our daughter is now in 3rd grade we are looking forward to what the future will bring at ACS.

Beyond the Classroom

ACS encourages the exploration of personal growth and fun experiences beyond the school walls. We further emphasize a love of learning through creative educational programs and organized activities both on and off-campus.
