Alabama Christian’s Upper School serves students in grades 6 through 12. We strive to help our students grow spiritually and academically through a challenging curriculum intentionally designed with a Christian worldview. Our Middle School students in grades 6, 7 and 8 are nurtured and supported as we help them make the transition from Elementary to High School.
Our goal is to help them gain more independence and responsibility through an advanced curriculum with a spiritual emphasis. Middle School students experience all core courses, as well as extra-curricular activities like our award-winning fine arts programs (Art, Band, Chorus and Drama), athletics and STEM. High School students in grades 9 through 12 are offered a college preparatory curriculum designed to equip them for a successful, faithful and service-led life.
ACA offers AP Classes in World History, Psychology, Calculus, Biology, Computer Science, Government, European History and U.S. History. Forty percent of our high school students are currently enrolled in Advanced Placement classes and Dual Enrollment courses. ACA offers Honors Classes in English, Chemistry, Algebra II, Economics, and Geometry. Alabama Christian Academy goes even further than providing top-tier academics. Students at ACA are challenged academically through classes that include a daily Bible course, and additionally challenged to serve others through various service projects and community outreach programs.
Dual Enrollment College Credit
We understand the importance of helping students transition into college prepared with a mature foundation of character as well as experienced in college level courses. ACA’s Dual Enrollment Program with Faulkner University offers high-achieving students the opportunity to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. Current Dual Enrollment courses offered are Composition I/II, Literature I/II and Finite.
School counselors act as advocates for students’ well-being, and as valuable resources for their educational advancement. School counselors help reduce obstacles preventing students from reaching their potential. They arm students with the skills, strategies and support they need to build the foundation for a successful and productive life. Children and young adults need guidance and support, especially when it comes to dealing with academic, personal, parental and social pressures. The counselor’s job is always anchored in helping students develop the skills they need to navigate and be successful—whether in school, on the field or in college. Exactly what does a school counselor do? They listen. They teach. They advocate. They care.
