A Letter from the Executive Director
It has been my joy and honor to serve as the Executive Director at Altamonte Christian School for more than 15 years. ACS is a dynamic community of students, teachers, and alumni who are making a difference in the world. Whether learning in the classroom, performing on the stage, competing in a sport, or serving in the community, ACS teaches students to think and understand the world around them by encouraging them to live lives of faith, character, and service. Our students graduate prepared to succeed in the finest colleges in our country and are equipped to communicate effectively through both written and spoken word. Our desire is to free this generation to think and live well while inspiring heartfelt joy and interest in learning.
While faith-based academics are the central focus of the ACS experience, our students take away from it much more than that. We provide a full range of athletic and fine arts opportunities, as well as daily Bible classes, weekly chapel programs, local service projects, and international leadership trips. Through these avenues, and through our faith in Jesus Christ and His standard, we seek to help develop well-rounded young men and women who think and live well.
On behalf of our educators, students, staff and the entire organization, I’d like to extend an invitation to you to visit ACS so you can experience first-hand what our school is all about. Visitors to our school often comment on the warmth and fun they sense here. ACS is a community where students feel cared about and like they belong, where lifelong friendships are forged, and where friendships across grades, between faculty and students, and among families are part of our everyday experience. I hope your visit to ACS through our website informs you and inspires you to visit us in person. Whether you schedule an appointment for a personal tour, enjoy a school play, or come cheer us on at a sporting event, we look forward to meeting you soon!
