Calling all High School students:  Our high school musical this year is Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast”.  The director, Mrs. Gale Post, is encouraging all high school students (no experience necessary) to come out for this great production. We need cast members AND crew members (tech, lighting, backstage) for this HUGE production. Please note that there will be a complimentary audition workshop on FRIDAY, AUGUST 19TH, 3:30 - 9:00 p.m. (A light dinner will be served.)  This is the first Friday of the school year.  Auditions will follow on either Sunday, August 21st at 2:00pm, or Monday, August 22nd at 3:30pm. “Call Backs” will be held on Tuesday, August, 23rd at 3:30pm. The performances of “Beauty & the Beast” are scheduled for November 10 - 13th.

For those who want to listen the cast album, Youtube has several selections…here is one:  To get an overview of the musical you can watch any of the thousands of full length musicals on Youtube (there are good ones and there are bad ones!).  I highly suggest watching the 2014 Tony Awards, as well as the “Making of Beauty and the Beast” (London) at the following link: .  Parents, watch for information on a required parent meeting  - date to be announced soon.




Parents, if you have gently used uniform items you would like to sell, you are welcome to bring them to the school!  Items must be tagged with your name and price you are asking for the item.  (tags are attached below for your convenience)  The school will retain $1 for each item you sell.  Any uniform items not sold must be picked up prior to the first day of school!  Checks for items sold will be sent out during the first or second week of school.

If your student needs uniform items for the coming school year, please check out the gently used uniform items for sale in the school lobby before you go to C & J Uniforms for new items.  We have polo shirts, oxford shirts, slacks, skirts, blazers, fleece jackets, and even some spirit wear shirts!  


Returning secondary students have been sent their class schedule for the new year via Gradenet message.  If your student did not receive their schedule, or if you need to change your secondary student’s schedule, or talk to someone about their classes, please contact Mrs. Cathey at [email protected] or call the school office.  You will find the secondary class schedule attached below.


If you have friends or family thinking about enrolling their students at ACA, remind them that school begins on August 15th, and there is a very good chance that some of our classes will close.  The sooner they begin the enrollment process, the better!  Thanks for recommending ACA to your friends.


School supplies for K4 - 5th Grade are included in your tuition costs for 2016-2017.  So are your student’s art fees, if they are in K4 - 5th grade!  The enrollment contract mentions it, but you may not have noticed it on there.  Secondary students must still purchase their school supplies. The secondary school supply list is attached below.  Please remember that not everything on the secondary supply list is required for every class.


The school calendar for the coming year is attached below and available on the school website. Make sure to note the dates of Parent Orientation and the first day of school!  Please note that the first day of school is a Student Orientation Day for ALL students - including part-time students.


During the summer, the school office will be open Monday - Thursday 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. If you need to reach someone outside of office hours, please email [email protected] .
