Christian School Culture
The culture at AACS is our #1 defining characteristic. It is what our parents say they value the most about the school. Our students 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. While everything we do contributes to our school culture, it is our covenantal partnership with parents and our biblical worldview that serve as the foundation for our unique Christ-centered culture.
Covenantal Christian School
It is the philosophy of AACS that we exist to partner with Christian families specifically seeking to provide their children with an excellent education from a biblical worldview. As a school founded on Christian principles we believe Christ is central to the educational experience. This is a unique aspect of our school that greatly impacts our school culture and that our families and students truly value. Our admission policies are designed to help parents and the school ensure that an effective partnership or covenant is formed so that a consistent message can be modeled and taught to the child in the home, church, and school. While we are a diverse community - diverse in ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, experiences, backgrounds, and more - biblical values serve as a unifying foundation. We set aside our focus on differences in favor of unity in spirit.
We all have a lens through which we view and understand the world. History, science, the arts, and every subject and every curriculum has a viewpoint. If a Christian viewpoint is not present, the only other option is a non-Christian viewpoint. There is no such thing as a “neutral viewpoint.” We teach from a Biblical worldview; God is real, the Bible is true, and biblical principles and values are integrated into our academics, athletics, arts, activities, and attitudes.

"During Back To School Night, I found myself looking around and thinking about how God has used AACS to shape and mold my son. How he used AACS to rescue him at a time when he was struggling badly in the public school system. He was lost. He was alone. He was hurting. But now? Well, you can see for yourself. God has used AACS to shape my son in so many ways. Music. Drama. Athletics. Academics. Socially. Spiritually. Maturity. He once was lost, but now is found. Cliche' I know, but honestly, it's what has happened. And as I sat there during Back To School Night, I realized it was all coming to an end. What I have come to take for granted is drawing to a close. I have already started praying that God will provide a college environment with a similar vibe......where God will use the people around my son to shape and mold him for His purposes."
