ENROLLMENT FOR 2017-2018

Please return your Enrollment Contracts to the office as soon as you can because we are now in the process of testing and interviewing new students and we want our current students to retain their place in their class.  If you are planning to pay tuition monthly through FACTS, please stop by the office and pick up a FACTS payment form, or call the office and we can send a form home with your student (we did not have them available when the re-enrollment packets were mailed out).  Also, please remember that if you received financial assistance for this school year, you must still apply for financial assistance for next year.  Please call the school office with any questions concerning re-enrollment.



VOICES OF AUGUSTINE

Join us this Thursday, April 20th, at 7:00 p.m. for an evening of beautiful voices brought to you by the ACA “Intro to Musical Theater” class.  This event is FREE and will be followed by a reception.  This class has been working hard to prepare for this performance, so please consider coming out to support them!



GRANDPARENTS DAY

This Friday, April 21, is Grandparents Day for our Grammar School classes!  They are excited to show off for their grandparents and for their grandparents to see their classroom and meet their teacher!  School will be dismissed at noon for all grades on Friday, and there will not be lunches or after school care available.  All students should be picked up by 12:15 p.m.



APOLOGETICS DEBATE

On Wednesday, April 26th, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., the Apologetics class, led by Mr. Taylor Drake, will be engaging in their first public debate in ACA’s Great Room. The topic of their debate is “The Problem of Suffering.” The students will present the traditional Christian arguments and Mr. Drake will present the traditional anti-theist arguments. This event is open to students, teachers, friends, and family of the students. Come out and support the Apologetic students as they defend their faith!

CHRISTIAN COLLEGE FAIR

Augustine Christian Academy is hosting a Christian College Fair on Tuesday, April 25th from 6:30 - 8:30pm at Highland Park Christian Church (on 31st between Sheridan & Yale).  There will be 12 - 14 Christian college and university representatives there and we are inviting all students in 9th - 12th grades.  We will also be having a financial aid presentation during the event for those who want to come to that at 7:30 pm.  

We would appreciate students registering for a college fair barcode before they arrive.  After they register for it they will be able to either bring it on their smartphone or print off a copy of it and bring it with them to the fair.  Because there are only two hours to visit with college representatives, as well as attend the financial aid presentation, having a barcode will save them a lot of time.  College representatives will be able to scan the it and get students’ contact info without having them fill out a card at each of their tables.  To register for the barcode, go to myblueprintstory.com, click on “Fair Search”, and then click the blue box that says “Get Your Barcode”.  Students can fill in their information at that point.

NACCAP (North American Coalition of Christian Admissions Personnel) is the organization that we are working with to host this college fair.  They are a wonderful Christian organization that strives to inform students and their families about the best Christian colleges and universities in the country - those that uphold authentic Christian teaching and values with faculty and staff that are true to that calling.  We are very proud to be in partnership with them in hosting this fair!  We hope to see all of our high school students in attendance and we encourage them to bring any of their other friends who may be on their college search as well.



SUMMER FIELD STUDIES

We are excited to start a Summer Field Study program. We are offering this program to our high school students (including the current 8th graders). The studies offered this summer will be Explore Oklahoma and Discover Dallas. There is a PDF attached below that will give you more details about the trips. The trips are tentatively scheduled for the 3rd week in June and the 3rd week in July.  In order for a trip to work out, we must have 6 students committed. There is also a maximum number of 12 students per trip. Students who complete one of the trips will also be able to receive 3 colloquia points. Colloquia points are part of the requirements to graduate from ACA. We are looking for interested students! If you have any questions or comments please contact Jessika Crow at [email protected]
