Definition of Educational Excellence

Although test scores are important, they alone are not the markers of an excellent educational program.  We want to help our students gain knowledge, to master and enjoy the full array of subjects and possibilities, but we also want students to acquire and live by the wisdom of God.  We believe that knowledge without character is dangerous, and character without faith is empty.  

The AACS educational goals describe characteristics that we believe will enable, equip, and inspire our graduates to do their best, to seek truth, to serve others, and to do their part in stewarding all of creation.  From kindergarten through 12th grade, AACS faculty work together towards these educational goals for our students.  We want our graduates to leave AACS as engaged and active learners, growing believers, responsible stewards, compassionate neighbors, and effective communicators.  These are the markings of the excellent college preparatory Christian education that students experience at Annapolis Area Christian School.

Monica, Mother of AACS Graduate

Dear Ms. Hartman, 

My son always said that he enjoyed your class. I know you really worked with him throughout his time as a student, and your efforts were and are very much appreciated.  Apparently your efforts paid off and something stuck with him. His English professor took him aside and told him how pleased she was with his work. She told him that he was one of her better students and that he must have been well instructed in high school. He currently has an A in that class.  He was so happy to hear a praise like that, he phoned me in the middle of the day to let me know.  He actually said " AACS really was preparing me for college, I just didn't know it at the time".  So thank you Ms. Hartman for being the teacher you are and preparing my son to do his best.  I can't thank you enough!"  

Todd, Pastor and Father of Upper School Student

Without exception, AACS is one of the finest education institutions for Christian students I personally have known. Your commitment to excellence both physically and mentally coupled with superior academics sets you high above other schools.

Brad, Father of Upper and Middle School Students

The student/teacher relationship goes far beyond their traditional rolls. The teachers take the time to build relationships with the students and invest in them.

Susan, Mother of Lower School Children

The school is the best Christian school that I have ever come across. I am beyond pleased with the efforts made by all of the faculty and staff during this past school year. My children do not want to go to any other school. They love the school and so do we.
