A Message from the Director of Admissions

Dear Prospective Family, 


Thank you for your interest in Altamonte Christian School. Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as it will have a tremendous impact on their growth academically, spiritually, emotionally and physically. We are honored and so excited that you are considering partnering with our school for your child’s education. At ACS, we take the privilege of educating children very seriously. It would be an honor to assist you in the process of determining the best school for your family and your child.

Since 1966, we have been committed to keeping Jesus Christ as our focus and the Bible as our foundation as we partner with parents in the education of students in preschool through twelfth grade. Our qualified and credentialed school faculty are committed to providing an academically challenging program within a nurturing, safe environment.

We would consider it a blessing to be a part of the educational plan for your family. The first step in the admissions process is scheduling a campus tour.  Taking a campus tour is an invaluable way to learn more about the school, and experience firsthand all that ACS has to offer your student and family.  I invite you to contact our Admissions Department to learn more about Altamonte Christian School and how choosing a Christian education is an investment that will leave a lasting and eternal legacy. I can’t wait to meet you!


Dara Polino
