Welcome to Annapolis Area Christian School
For over five decades, Annapolis Area Christian School has been dedicated to educating the whole child—mind, body, and spirit—within a distinctively Christian framework. As a leader in K-12 private education, we pride ourselves on delivering an academically rigorous program tailored to meet the diverse learning needs of all our students.
 
Academic Excellence and Support
At AACS, we aim to cultivate sustainable academic success for every student. Our comprehensive curriculum includes a challenging college prep program designed to push students to their highest potential. Recognizing that each student has unique learning needs, we also provide robust educational support to ensure everyone can thrive.
 
Holistic Development
Our commitment to academic rigor is complemented by a broad array of extracurricular opportunities. Students can immerse themselves in competitive athletics and a dynamic fine arts program, allowing them to explore and develop their individual interests fully.
 
Faith in Action
One of the most distinctive features of Annapolis Area Christian School is our vibrant, faith-based community. Faith is not only taught but lived daily in every classroom, on every performance stage, athletic field, and through all activities. This integration of faith and learning creates a unique environment where lifelong relationships are formed, and students see Christian values modeled consistently.
 
Community and Leadership
Our Christ-centered community is highly valued by our families, who appreciate the supportive and nurturing environment we provide.
