ENROLLMENT FOR 2017-2018
Re-enrollment packets were mailed out at the beginning of spring break, so if you did not receive your packet, please check in the school office to make sure we have your correct address and to pick up a packet. 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.

OKLAHOMA JUNIOR CLASSICAL LEAGUE
On Friday, March 24, four students from ACA and their sponsors drove to Moore, Oklahoma to participate in the Oklahoma Junior Classical League Convention. This annual event is a great opportunity for students who study Latin and appreciate the impact of our classical heritage, to fellowship together and compete in academics, athletics, and the arts with students from across the state. Although our delegation was small in numbers this year, they represented ACA well and came away with quite a few victories as listed below. The convention is a great deal of fun, and we look forward to taking a larger delegation next year.
Achievements of the 2017 Delegates:
Sarah Green (School of Dialectic – Class of 2023) This was Sarah’s first year at OKJCL, and even though she is in Introduction to Latin, there is no competition for that, so she had to compete with the Latin I students.

In 1976, the Rotary Club of Tulsa partnered with Junior Achievement to develop a private enterprise business simulation program called Titan. They endeavored to invite and fully scholarship Juniors from area schools to an annual 4-day event they would call Camp Enterprise. For the past four years, Juniors from ACA have participated in this amazing competition. This year, five of our students participated and showed themselves to be very strong competitors, representing ACA very well! We are proud to announce that two of our challengers, Ian Brandenburg and Katherine Bates, were voted to be Presidents of two of the 8 competing teams. We are even more excited to announce that Ian Brandenburg and his team (which included our own Micah Chambers) came home with the big win, taking 1st place for having the strongest and most profitable company at the end of 4 days and 20 rounds of competitions. Katherine Bates came home with the much coveted President’s Award. This award is issued by the directors of Camp Enterprise for excellence in the use of mentors and business resources to grow and excel in their role as leader of their teams. Congratulations to all five of our Camp Enterprise students: Ian Applebaum, Katherine Bates, Kayla Bender, Ian Brandenburg and Micah Chambers! All of these participants (and their parents) have been invited to the Tulsa Rotary luncheon on Wednesday, April 26th, at noon, where they will also be honoring Ian Brandenburg for his team win!
