ACA has been a blessing to our family. My 2 children had been at another private school for 7 years and became increasingly more unhappy with each passing year. The teachers here have a calling to do right by the children. The leadership here is stellar as is the communication between staff and parents. Their goal is to raise children who are not just academically strong, but spiritually strong self assured, good stewards. They cater to the whole child. They are compassionate yet firm with ill behave children and do not tolerate consistent disruptive behavior. My children have made many great friends and have been made to feel very welcomed. There is strong parental involvement and the facility is beautiful. They practice what they preach and we could not have asked for more.

I feel like the reviews listed were a bit one-sided, so I thought I should share my thoughts. I am not a parent--- I was a student at ACA for 7 years. While I was there it was clear some families really loved it. Some students really loved living in the tiny ACA bubble. My experiences may be a bit dated (I left in 2004), but I don't believe anything has changed. A handful of teachers were good (some were wonderful), and some of them were atrocious. Today, they are teaching that dinosaurs never existed, and that somehow reflects the age of the Earth. In 2003, they showed my class videos about the Loch Ness Monster and saying it proves dinosaurs still exist. After I switched to another school, I learned that ACA was notorious for poor sportsmanship. I've seen ACA coaches yelling that injured opponents were "faking it," and heckling the ref to no end. I could go on for an eternity. Despite the wonderful parent reviews here, always know what your child needs. I begged my mom for three years to get me out of this place.

My daughter began attending ACA her sophomore year. She was welcomed by everyone at the school. The teachers are very encouraging and the students are kind and courteous to each other. I am excited to see where the next two years has in store for her.

My daughter graduated from ACA in 2007 and had been there since kindergarten. It was the best decision we ever made for her. She received a stellar education and breezed through four years of college. Not only was she prepared academically and socially but she was prepared spiritually and was equipped to defend her faith. I thank God for ACA.

My son loves this school and so do we. After attending VERITAS in 6th, 7th and 8th, we are thanking God for ACA. Our son is bright and has a 4.0 with all honors classes. He is of an ethnic look yet we have experienced no issues at all with regards to any prejudice in fact it has been just the opposite. All the students and faculty are great and very committed to Godly relationship and support. Admissions policies are such that if one parent is not a "Born Again Believer" and the child has any history of being a characterized disruption to others-do not apply-ACA is a private school for learning and not a babysitting institution for uninvolved parents of unruly children. There are plenty of private schools who will take your child as long as you can write the check, ACA is not one of them and my family is thankful for that.

When we moved to western NC halfway through the school year, I worried about putting my son into a new school. We researched every public, private and Christian school in the area looking for the right balance of academics, faith formation, athletics, and extracurrcular activities. We found that balance at ACA. Not only are the academics much stronger than in the public schools, but our son was accepted into the classroom from day one as just another student, not the "new guy." He has loved his time at ACA, gotten highly involved in sports and academic enrichment programs and has been placed a grade year ahead in math as he tested well in the spring. Every school has issues and ACA is no exception. I find that being involved with the school, having an open line of communication with teachers, and talking every day with my son about school helps nip problems in the bud. I highly recommend ACA to any parent looking for a well-rounded, college-prep curriculum that is taught in a loving, Christian environment for their children.

Incredible teachers with a holistic approach to teaching. My son is in 5th grade, first year here. I wish we would have been here sooner.

We chose ACA when our oldest daughter was in first grade. She's now set to graduate and we're very pleased with the education she and her three siblings have received there.

Two of my children graduated, and my youngest is a sophomore. We chose ACA because we thought it was the best school in Western North Carolina. Ten years later, we know it is the best school for our children. The academics are challenging. The biblical foundation is laid in every class. (How can you know anything without knowing the Author and Creator of everything?) Teachers are highly qualified and professional. Even the kids are pretty nice. Athletics and the Fine Arts are practiced at a high level. ACA isn't the school for everyone, but it's well worth a visit.

I graduated from ACA in 2003 after going there since first grade. It provided me with great opportunities and gave me a strong foundation of faith to take into the world.

I have had two children at ACA for the last six years. The teachers have been great and my kids are thriving. It is wonderful to have a school where teachers care about their students and students are getting a Christian education with academic excellence. The new facility is great! We also love participating in athletics!

We have had two children at ACA, one graduated 2000, the other, this year. Both were accepted at top colleges/university and were well prepared to face academic and life challenges! What a blessing this school is to Christian families.
