“I believe a school should be fun and rigorous in equal measure. Too rigorous and it won’t be fun. Too fun and you’ll never learn to spell rigorous.”
“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.”
The Central Area will always be the heart of the school, both architecturally and philosophically. We recognize its importance and as such it is a paramount priority in the design of our new school. We hope the new Central Area will accommodate more people more comfortably and still retain the intimacy that we all love about the original. And now we will have a second Central Area, one that is outdoors in the footprint of the original school building. So, the Central Area won’t be the same; it’s going to be better.
