I am an alumni student of ADCS from the graduating 8th grade class of 1999. I attended a public high school after 8th grade at ADCS, and can truly say that I got a better education in my jr. high years than all 4 years in high school. The principal taught an accelerated English class, which while very rigorous at the time, put me at the top of my class and I believed helped to prepare me later to pass AP English tests. I also felt that the in the 1 year of Spanish offered my 8th grade year I learned more than all 3 years I took in high school combined. The teachers care and offer tons of one-on-one attention for each student.

The curriculum seems appropriate for preparing students for kindergarten. Extra curricular activities are frequent and nourishing. Parent involvement seems low. They seem to yell quite alot at the preschoolers and as a result I am removing my child from the school for fear his curiosity and spirit will be crushed.

My child attends Jr. High at A.D.C.S. and also attended the elementary school. The curriculum has been challenging in a good way. I love the fact that the school focuses on education, values, patriotism and God. The principals, Ms. Calthorpe and Mr. Arkes care deeply for the children, yet insist on behavior and discipline. They may seem strict at times to the children, but the outcome of order in the classroom is rewarding for the development of my child. My child is caring and has great self-esteem. Of course, love and values begin at home. Sending your child to A.D.C.S. continues it throughout each day.

I am a former student of A.D.C.S.I attended the school for two years,for junior high. Through those two years i learned quite well. I met alot of friends and great teachers. I learned school can be fun while learning. I think so far junior high was the funnest time. Due to the excellent teachers and friends. Although junior high was 'The Best'. The high school there is a waste of time. I believe they fall tramendously from the 8th grade to the 9th grade. So i would encourage you not to go to high school there but absolutely go to junior high there.

Tuition is an incredible value given what is available in the area. Honor and character development are emphasized throughout the curriculum and instruction. Curriculum runs more in the classical vein and tends to challenge the students to evaluate their world views through reason rather than feelings. Classical Christian doctrine is foundational to discussion and analysis of all classroom topics.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
