RE-ENROLLMENT / ENROLLMENT

The success of each new year begins with successful preparation for the first days of school.  Obviously, the number of students we have determines what we can and cannot do for the coming year.  Knowing the enrollment numbers ahead of time is paramount to making our efforts successful in providing a quality education for our students.

We are excited to say that we have a number of new families interviewing and enrolling – but it is our intention to make sure that we have space for our returning students!  However, we also have to view budgetary needs and staffing realistically, and this is based solely on our enrollment and re-enrollment numbers. While we always intend to give ample time for re-enrollment decisions, we know that sometimes those details get lost in the activities of summer. As a result, we want to encourage you to re-enroll as quickly as possible before you leave for vacations this summer. When you re-enroll your student, you are letting us know that we can continue to meet your expectations and to fulfill your desire to grow and nurture your child.  Let your friends know about your choice, ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­a classical model that comes alongside Christian parents who seek to train their children to think and reason from a distinctly Christian worldview.

Thank you for a busy and productive year with your students and we prayer that you’ll have a safe and fulfilling summer break!

CREDIT RECOVERY PROGRAM

Sometimes students find themselves missing a semester credit in a particular subject due to illness or a failing grade.  With the demands of a classical education, there is often not the time or room in the student’s class schedule to repeat a class or to take a semester somewhere else. To assist students who are otherwise doing well in their work, ACA is offering a summer recovery program for students in grades 8 - 12. The program will last only two weeks in June, but a student can complete the work necessary to earn back one semester of lost credit in a particular course.

A custom program will be designed for each student, who will be monitored and tutored by the teacher. The class will meet from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM Monday through Friday for two weeks, June 19-30, 2017. There will be breaks throughout the day including lunchtime, (students would bring a sack lunch.) The cost is $300.00 for the two weeks, and will result in one semester credit for students who complete the work.

There is a limit of 12 students allowed in the program and the registration form must be received in the office no later than Monday, June 5th. There is a flyer with registration form attached below.  Please call the school office if you have any questions about this credit recovery summer program.
