what parents have to say

"I love this school. My children and grandchildren have attended and are still attending. I couldn’t ask for a better place for them to learn Christian values and get a good education. Teachers provide help when needed (academically and spiritually) and truly care about the whole child. ACS is an extension of our home."

"I attended my first chapel service this morning as a parent visitor and WOW! Y’all do an EXCELLENT job! I teared up many times just watching. We are incredibly blessed that God has given us the ability to send our kids to school here. I am so grateful for you and your staff for pouring yourselves into teaching our kids God’s Word and reaching their hearts with it!"
