“I believe I have the confidence to stretch myself and not settle for what feels okay, but to question and seek different answers.”
“I believe an education at ACS is like a best friend. It walks with you, hand in hand, as the lessons of life unfold. It teaches you the art of thinking and discovery. It empowers you to be true to yourself, and it lasts a lifetime.”
“I believe that if I reach a high level of self-knowledge and inner peace, I can help to make the world just a little bit better.”
“I believe in learning through experience. I believe in exploration. I believe in science and art. In music. Outdoor education. Indoor education. Creativity. Adventure. Family. Beauty. Messiness. Curiosity. I believe in learning, always.”
We officially broke ground in July 2014, following a groundbreaking ceremony on June 3. Phase I construction has progressed over the summer and the new gym is planned for opening in May 2015, with the K-8 schoolhouse on schedule to be complete by June 2015. Phase II construction, including the Music and Science learning center and Outdoor Central Area is dependent upon the successful realization of Phase II fundraising.
