Why Kingdom Unity?Kingdom Unity comes from God. It is the essence (ethos) of all Christ-centered work. It is our Lord and Savior's high calling for us to model what He did during His earthly ministry by considering "the least of these" in reference to historically marginalized groups.

Therefore, to support our mission statement in engaging students in an education of excellence, we promote unity through diverse, equitable, and inclusive kingdom-building educational practices that embrace a core set of beliefs in Kingdom Unity that informs everything we do, say, and think in terms of our culture, age/ability, racial, ethnic, social differences (C.A.R.E.S) and the way students learn so that families from all backgrounds are welcomed, valued, affirmed and equipped to succeed at AACS.

"We know the devastating history of racism in our country." One Cure for Racism is a three-part course with author and church planter D.A. Horton.
