The Charger Newsletter


The ACA Class of 2016 will be presenting their Senior Thesis papers this Friday evening, May 13th, beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the ACA Great Room with one of the keynote presenters. Our seniors have worked hard all year to research and write their thesis papers; they have presented their papers to a panel of ACA teachers, and now they are ready to present them to you.  There is a wide variety of topics and you might find it difficult to choose which presentations to attend during the evening since several students will present at the same time in various rooms.  This event is open to ACA high school students, parents, and friends.



There are a only 6 “Cat in the Hat” hats left  from “Seussical the Musical” that we are selling for $4 each. Get yours before school is out!


Those who ordered a photo CD’s from “Seussical” should pick those up in the school office.  The cost is $20 and checks can be made out to Nick Conroy.



During the first two weeks of June, we will again have our Summer Weeks of the Arts.  During week one, there are many classes/camps to choose from including: puppet camp, chess, Grailball, Fun in the Kitchen, and MORE!  During week two, there are two choices: Theater camp “Aladdin, Kids”, and Set & Prop camp (for “Aladdin”).  Register early to reserve your student’s place in the camp of their choice!  Registration forms for Week One and for Week Two are attached below.
