We are excited to share with you the new brand/logo for Arlington Community Academy!

Our goal was to create a logo, tagline and other visual assets that would reflect our mission and educational philosophy, while aligning with the modern feel and colors of our beautiful school. During the “discovery” process of creating the new brand, we utilized feedback and comments that you have provided through our parent surveys. Overwhelmingly, words like “excellence, friendly, clean, safe, faith-based, Christian, learning and caring” were how you described your experiences with ACA or the reasons you chose ACA for your child’s education.

From there, we started with a “Brand Idea”:  we believe all children, regardless of financial status, deserve access to an excellent education in a safe, loving environment. At ACA, children can explore a variety of educational pursuits, have their confidence inspired and uplifted, and develop a foundation of life-long skills to prepare the mind, body and spirit.

  • THE NEW LOGO, a modified version of our current crest, reflects three key elements: Christ, educational achievement, and the spirit of our soaring eagle mascot.
  • THE NEW COLORS include a modified version of our current blue, and a palette that is complementary to colors featured throughout our facility.
  • THE NEW TAGLINELearn. Love. Lead. Reflects our philosophy of education — both what we strive to deliver and what we aspire for your children to achieve.

ACA hosted a community Easter party on April 9 at their state of the art campus. Over 500 people attended. Children were able to take pictures with and dance with the Easter bunny, participate in an egg hunt, play in bounce houses and walk in an egg parade. Easter dinner was served to all attendees. Those interested in enrollment received an enrollment certificate for $200 off the registration fee. Ashford Matthews, Admissions Coordinator, was on campus to help families apply for the Step Up for Students scholarship. Head of School, Lauren May said, “We are very excited to make a positive impact on families in the Arlington neighborhood of Jacksonville. It was great to host a fun free event for families as we prepare to celebrate Easter.”
