About this school

If you're looking for a safe, happy place where students thrive, we hope you'll consider ACS. We provide a highly individualized education designed to engage children's interests and talents with our small class sizes, a wide range of enrichment classes in the elementary grades, and elective courses for our older students. From Begindergarten (our preschool program for four-year-olds) through our Middle School, ACS students are encouraged to discover their gifts and their passions — and they do!
