The AACS Upper School challenges students to reach their potential as scholars, artists, athletes, and, most importantly, as followers of Christ.
As scholars, students learn to think critically, solve problems, communicate, and collaborate as they discover and appreciate their God-given gifts and talents. A wide variety of courses are offered, from introductory through AP and honors, to help students explore, discover, learn, and understand the world around them.
As artists, students enjoy a wide range of music, theatre, visual art, and media arts opportunities. AACS has six choirs, five instrumental groups, a fall play and a spring musical, and much more to choose from and enjoy. We believe that students should use their artistic gifts to serve others, and we offer multiple opportunities for them to do so.
AACS athletes learn the ideals of sportsmanship and lessons of character. Coaches care deeply about their player’s growth; physically, intellectually, and spiritually. Endurance, resilience, and the pursuit of excellence are taught and modeled.
AACS Upper School students are each on their own faith journey, learning what it means to live a Christ-centered life. Faculty are hired not only because they are masters in their field, but also because their lives exemplify biblical wisdom and love. Biblical values and a biblical worldview perspective are integrated into everything we do at AACS. Bible class, chapel, mentor groups, and retreats are also a time when all students can grow in their faith and prepare for life after high school.
