“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.”
We are committed to including students in the design and building process. Starting in 2013, longtime teacher Chris Faison began student involvement. Projects thus far include: a Student Apprentice Architectural Group that, among its projects, is building a model of the schematic design; student photographers who are video-archiving the campus as it exists today as well as creating a construction time lapse video; and all ages staking out the new building. We will also be providing regular tours of the construction site to students. It is an organic process and we will take advantage of the many amazing opportunities for kids to get involved, as they present themselves.
