Alabama Christian Academy is a K3-12th grade college-preparatory school committed to offering a challenging, Christ-centered education to its students, while keeping in mind each student's individual needs. ACA offers several AP and honors classes for advanced secondary students, as well as dual-enrollment classes through Faulkner University. Students diagnosed with learning difficulties are offered the option of the LEAP program in addition to their daily classes. Each teacher at ACA offers tutoring for their students once a week at no charge.
In line with its Christian philosophy, all ACA students attend Bible class and chapel daily. As a service-oriented school, Alabama Christian Academy encourages students to participate in various community outreach projects and charitable works throughout the academic year. Our students are expected to think critically, analyze the world around them, and develop their relationship with Christ. We take a strong stand in encouraging personal responsibility, a giving heart, and godly character in students who will be equipped to serve and lead in their communities.
In the 21st century, literacy can no longer be confined to reading, writing and arithmetic. Students now must also possess technological literacy and competency in order to be successful in the classroom and beyond. With this in mind, Alabama Christian Academy strives to integrate technology into the very fabric of all learning opportunities and provide our students with the tools necessary for success in today’s increasingly connected society. Communication, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking, combined with a strong sense of ethics embedded in the Christian faith, enables students to effect positive change in their communities and worldwide.
All students in grades K3-5 have access to both classroom-based iPads and Chromebooks, while each student in grades 6-12 is issued a Chromebook. ACA provides campus-wide, wireless high-speed Internet access as well as both on and off-campus content filtering for all students. Each student in grades K-12 has access to a personal Google Suite for Education account, which provides a robust set of communication and productivity tools managed by ACA.
More than half of Alabama Christian Academy’s teachers hold an advanced degree, showing their commitment to education. Just as important, our staff and faculty are made up of strong Christian role models for our students. These gifted professionals not only enhance curricula through subject-matter expertise, diverse instructional techniques, current technology, and cooperative learning strategies – but also by integrating a Christian worldview within a supportive learning environment.
