SECONDARY CLASS SCHEDULE

A secondary class schedule for 2015-2016 is now available and you will find it attached below.  Please keep in mind that the schedule will probably be revised over the next couple of weeks as the teachers are assigned their classes.  (There is a change from previous years: 6th Grade is a transition year. It is structured with a Homeroom teacher for all core classes. Part-time 6th grade students are welcome to enroll for any “elective” classes such as music, art, computer exploration and beginning language studies.)  Watch the Charger for updates to the class schedule!

 

SENIOR CHAPEL

On Monday, May 11th, we will be having our annual Senior Chapel service which gives our seniors the chance to speak to their fellow students and their teachers.  Since the Senior Chapel tends to be longer than a normal chapel service, we will be following our Salt & Light chapel & class schedule.  You will find this adjusted schedule attached below.

 

FACTS PAYMENT FORMS

The FACTS monthly payment forms for the 2015-2016 school year are now available in the school office.  If you are planning to pay your tuition next year with the monthly payment option of FACTS automatic withdrawals, please stop by the school office and pick up the payment form.  Forms need to be returned to the office at least three weeks prior to the first payment.



SECONDARY FINAL EXAMS

Final exams for secondary students will be on Wednesday, May 13, 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., and Thursday, May 14, 8:00 a.m. until noon.  Students who are unsure if they need to take their final exam, should check with their teacher prior to May 12th. All make-up tests and quizzes must be taken by noon on May 14th unless other arrangements are made with the teacher.  For more information on and the procedure for the two days of final exams, please see the attachment below.




GRADUATION CEREMONIES

At Augustine Christian Academy we celebrate several milestones in a student’s life, so we have four different graduation ceremonies.  The dates times and locations are listed below.  All of our graduations are important events.  As such, we expect ALL ACA students to come to the ceremonies in High Convocation uniforms.  Thank you, Parents, for making sure your child is appropriately dressed for these special occasions!  All secondary students are encouraged to attend the 8th grade and 12th grade graduation ceremonies.

SUMMER WEEKS OF THE ARTS AT ACA

The first two weeks in June will be the Weeks of the Arts at ACA.  The first week will offer such classes as Puppet Camp, Stagecrafting, Costume & Prop Crafting, Bell Choir Essentials, and Music Code Breakers.  The second week will be Disney’s “The Lion King” Kids Musical with performances at the end of the week.  There are classes for students in 1st grade through 9th grade!  The classes are open to non-ACA students, so our students can bring their neighbors, church friends, & cousins with them.  Please see the attached registration form for all of the information!

JOIN THE CIRCLE OF LIFE – EXPERIENCE “THE LION KING - KIDS” ON THE ACA SUMMER STAGE!

The FREE Audition Placement workshop is this Saturday, May 9th -  9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. with a mandatory parent meeting following the workshop. Cost is $150 but there are discounts if paid on or before May 9th. This is a COMMUNITY THEATRE for grades 1 - 9 so it is NOT limited to ACA students.
