    Featured Review: Junior says ACA is a constantly improving and expanding school. There are pros and cons to its education, but overall, I believe it was best that I went here.

Arabic could use...The other basic subjects, like Math and English, are just ordinary. Better than public schools, but perhaps lacking compared to other preparatory schools. Clubs and bonus hours are not too great, but...The environment depends on your stance. Personally, I did not hate or like it. I can't comment..

    Featured Review: Parent says We transferred our kids from public school because they did not get challenged enough. We first attended a band/choir recital, & we were sold! We looked into it some more, &were happy. Kids R held accountable, which is a huge life skill! Rebellion is dealt with in a kindly manner, and counseling is always offered. Parents R involved in disciplinary decisions, as they R partners w/...Academic ratings R good / the state accreditation. Teachers are super dedicated, not only to academics, but also are catering to the person as a whole, spiritually, and other areas of development. Being a small school, athletics is not it's forte, yet mostly dictated by resources and availability of participants. Attn to safety is top priority &the rule of this 'land' is "love your neighbor as yourself." Staff is superior to any school I've seen. I never felt pressured to join the church, yet found a family here. I would like to write more, space is limited. This school is top notch, IMHO!.
