Excellent school if you are looking for a Christian based school. I was a little intimidated by the application process but now that my daughter has finished the first year and I have seen how she loves school and her teacher I am so glad I choose this school. I like how it encourages parental involvement and teaches basic bible principles. Parents seem very nice and concerned about their child's education. Beautiful campus and classrooms. Very good leadership from the top down. Academics is a priority as it should be with this school.
This is our first year in the Kindergarten Readiness Program. We can't express how happy we are with the school and teachers. While we are not involved in after school activities yet, the school seems to have a lot to offer. We can't say enough great things about the school!!
I was looking into AACC for my daughters' education. The application is lengthy and focuses too much on church involvement. As a newcomer to the area, and a new believer, I was hoping that a Christian School would have a more 'open arms' approach to a family seeking a Christian education for their children. Shouldn't that be part of the ministry? Suffer the little children unto me; NOT give the third degree to a parent's faith or church involvement to deem worthines. I was very much offended and found the application guidlines un-Christian like and discriminating. I would not allow my children to receive an education at AACC based on such biased school principles.
Excellent Christian education! Our three daughters graduated from Annapolis Area Christian School. They all went on to higher education and found they were very well prepared for college work espcially in the English area. The Upper School has a new campus. AACS has an excellent fine arts program, award winning marching band and chorale groups. The Middle School has an excellent academic reputation and offers numerous electives and afterschool programs.
AACS is very overrated. Academically it is weak and there is not a strong enough emphasis on structure and order. There is a general laxness to their approach to education and for a Christian school not enough of an emphasis on teaching morality and ethics. They do have an incredible marching band and music program.
Very average school that plays favorites...and allows those favorites to retake tests/redo work. The others are left out. Discipline seems to be handed out in the same manner. The school teachers and administrators are seasoned and can talk a good talk, but not all walk the talk. Communication between some teachers is lacking. I think there are many better private schools in the Annapolis Area.
This is a very good school. However, the after school activites could be better, the choices are band, band, or sports. There no other choices. Discipline could have been dealt with better. The Upper Schools science and math departments could be better, but the English department is fantastic. The teachers are very dedicated to the students and truly enjoy their work, and want to help the students learn.
My daughter attended AACS last year and loved it! She will be going to first grade this year and is very excited to get back to her friends and the wonderful teachers. AACS encourages high parental involvement, which I think is so different than the public school systems.
We had our son Luke finish three years at AACS high school. We have had four children in 14 different schools. AACS rates in the top two schools. The school has a vision, philosophy of Christian education, and a great teaching staff.
