Athletics

The mission of American Christian School is to develop students who think critically, communicate effectively and excel academically for Christ. We believe that athletics are an integral part of this process. We desire athletes and coaches whom will give their best and try to win, consistently. Individual success at the team, conference, and state level is the dream of most athletes, and we hope that all ACS athletes will experience the thrill of performing well, winning championships, and of rising to one’s potential. Yet, the highest goal is to live a life that honors God. Alongside a faithful walk, we teach WHIM as a cornerstone of fulfilling this goal. Work Ethic, Humility, Integrity, and Maturity are aspects that we regard as important measures of every athlete’s spiritual growth.

Spiritual Growth

We at American Christian School place Christ at the center of our curriculum and our daily lives. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to seeking God’s best for our students. We provide an environment conducive to both spiritual and academic growth utilizing the renowned framework of Classical Christian Education.

WHIM

American Christian School endeavors to develop each student’s mind and spirit, inspiring them to become lifelong learners and individuals who value Christian principles and exemplify the four traits of our WHIM Character Program.

Work Ethic: A set of values based on the moral virtues of consistent hard work and diligence.

Humility: The willingness to be taught or corrected and the desire to honor others before self.

Integrity: A commitment to make the correct moral and ethical decision, even when forces are telling and pulling one to do otherwise.

Maturity: Wisdom, born out of life events that give individuals the ability to express the right emotion at the right intensity and the discernment to interpret others’ emotions.

Every aspect of ACS is founded on a relationship with Jesus Christ

Teacher Devotion: Every morning teachers gather to pray and prepare for the day
