We engage students in an education of excellence enabling them to impact the world through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our Educational Philosophy:
The education of Annapolis Area Christian School is grounded in Biblical truth, Christ’s redeeming grace, and the historical Christian faith. Students prepare for and learn through opportunities to live out their faith, in worship, love, and obedience in light of the Bible and a creation-fall-redemption-restoration framework. Our mission is to engage students in an education of excellence, enabling them to impact the world through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ; we prepare and equip our students for college, career, and service pursuits so that they may both participate in Christ’s redemptive work and grow in their relationship with Him.
AACS is an accredited comprehensive Christian K – 12 school: an educational, spiritual, and social partnership between parents, students, and faculty/staff. This partnership is best lived out with relationship between the parents, the school, and the church. Partners are rooted in a God-centered, committed relationship with Jesus Christ. The AACS community invites students toward responsibility and expertise as growing believers, active and lifelong learners, effective communicators, responsible stewards, and compassionate neighbors.
Therefore, we provide, evaluate, and continually strengthen a comprehensive and relevant curriculum of academic, spiritual, athletic, artistic, and technical content and skills in order to meet our educational goals and prepare our students for college and career. Both content and skills progress and scaffold as the years advance.
Instruction at AACS incorporates methods and materials that support and promote engaged and collaborative learning, thinking, and problem-solving. These draw from and develop students’ gifts and abilities to help them reflect God’s image.
Our students’ faith, academic growth, service, and stewardship while on our campuses will attest to the success of our programs. The accreditation process continually affirms and refines our programs. Our graduates’ skills and talents, ability to engage the world with discernment, passion for Christ, thirst for knowledge, and compassion for all God’s creatures will bear God-honoring fruit.
