The Academy recognizes four essential areas in the formation of the human person. By thoroughly cultivating each of these areas, ACS moves its students toward the realization of their greatest individual potential.
The curriculum challenges the students daily. They are encouraged to think critically, develop a healthy curiosity about the world around them and to express themselves clearly. Core subjects are complemented by an array of programs in the areas of academics, fine arts and athletics.
Character is shown in fidelity to one’s principles and convictions. It implies self control, perseverance, trustworthiness, a sense of duty and responsibility, and generosity. Every aspect of school life is an opportunity to develop character. Character is developed through respect for teachers and others, punctuality, fulfillment of assignments, teamwork, order, cleanliness and helpfulness.
We define ourselves by what we give to others. Community involvement is determined by student’s age and embraces a range of projects for individual and group outreach and service, both in the local community and beyond.
