AACS promotes an environment where children are expected to perform to the best of their abilities rather than to arbitrarily high or low expectations. Persistence and determination to do their best is valued over striving for academic success at any cost.
I have one student attending AACS and I intend to keep him there through 8th grade. This school has provided his older siblings a solid education and has prepared them to perform well at the highest level classes offered at the public high school they have attended. Furthermore, the school administration, the staff and the community of parents that support the school provide an environment for the children where they know they are loved for their value as persons (not for their academic successes) and consequently, an environment that helps the children grow to be adults who will value those around them.
