ACA was started by a small group of local residents who wanted to provide an exceptional education and make a positive impact in the lives of the children in Jacksonville. They wanted to create a socially-diverse and nurturing school environment, supported by a strong foundation of Christian values, character development, and parental involvement. This group envisions the students at ACA growing to become responsible and confident leaders who serve God, serve their families, and positively impact their communities. 

Who started ACA and why? 


Do I pay tuition? 

ACA's mission is to provide excellent education and support for our families. Tuition assistance is available, but each family will be expected to contribute and be committed to their child's education. We are committed to providing each child with an opportunity to succeed. Your commitment as a parent/guardian requires that you support your student, attend parent/teacher meetings and abide by the rules outlined in the Parent Contract.

We welcome children of all faiths and we welcome family to attend our weekly chapel services.

We will grow each year until 5th grade.

Will my child use technology? 

YES! We encourage teachers to use technology every day, in every classroom, in all grade levels. 


Is there a school bus or transportation provided?

Unfortunately, there is not transportation provided at this time. The parents/guardians are responsible for dropping off and picking their children every day. 


Is there before/after school care for my child?
