There's something different at AACS. You can feel it from the moment you step foot onto the campus: kids responding when you talk with them, happily engaging in polite conversation and willing to lend a helping hand. No, it's not something in the water...it's Jesus.
At AACS, we are serious about learning, but not just about facts and figures. We're serious about loving our neighbors, respecting each other, and training ourselves to excel in every area; and that means creating opportunities to practice. We have worked hard to create and sustain an environment where doing your best is the norm. Our students are active learners and are immersed in a Christ-centered school culture where being a compassionate neighbor, an effective communicator, and a responsible steward are just as important as doing your very best academically.
That's just what our program of extra curricular activities offers. From the beginning, kids participate in aspects of leading Chapel each week, and by the time they reach the Upper School, they produce the entire event. Older kids partner with younger kids in discipleship groups where they learn how to encourage each other and stretch themselves to do things they wouldn't necessarily gravitate to on their own. We invite you to explore the opportunities...if you don't see something you're interested in, maybe it's because you're just the person we've needed to help us get it started!
Students at AACS are encouraged to get involved, make friends, and discover their gifts and talents through a wide range of extracurricular activities, sports, arts, clubs and activities, student life activities, retreats, and much more. We have seen first-hand how students who “get involved” have a more well-rounded educational experience because they have opportunities outside of the classroom to practice vital life skills that help them develop healthy relationships built upon Christian values and to develop into mature character witnesses for Christ.
