The Charger Newsletter


School supplies for grades K4 - 5th grade are included in tuition and will be distributed to students at the beginning of school.  Parents will still need to purchase backpacks & lunch bags.  The art fee for Grammar School students is also included in tuition.  

The school supply list for secondary students is attached below and you will notice that a lot of the items are listed with “as needed”, “as requested by teacher”, and “suggested”.  Please note which items your student will definitely need for school.  If you have any questions, please call the school office.


The Dress Code has been updated/changed a bit!  You and your students will want to take a look at it before school begins.  You can find the Dress Code attached below or on our web site at:  

Also, please see page 20 of the Parent/Student Handbook at:   

Please call the school office if you have any questions.


If you have uniform items that your students have outgrown and they are still in good repair, consider bringing them to ACA to consign.  Consigned items will be on display for sale to our families through Orientation night, August 10th.  Please tag each item with your name, the size, and sales price.  Please note that $1 of each item sold will go to ACA and the rest will be paid to you after the close of the sale in August.  Items accepted include: blazers, sweaters, polo shirts, oxford shirts, uniform slacks & shorts, skirts, & jumpers.  Uniform items may also be donated to the school for the school to sell.  Unsold items must be picked up at the school the first week of school.  If you have any questions, please contact Miss Cathey at [email protected]


We still have a few projects that have not been funded yet!  We have developed a page on our website that is dedicated to our current projects. We will keep this page updated to let you know when a project is nearing or has achieved full funding and other progress made. We have already received partial or full funding for three of our projects! Check them all out at the link below. We thank you in advance for your desire to continually assist us in improving our campus for your children and grandchildren. If you know of someone we should contact for financial assistance, or who can assist in acquiring grant monies or if you work for a company that will match your financial gift, please reach out to Mr. Ahrens at [email protected]   You will find this project page at:


Attached below you will find the School Calendar for 2017-2018 which shows all of the school breaks & early dismissal days, dates for the musicals, Little Theater nights, Trivia Night, graduations, Grandparents Day, etc.  We have also added the 20th Anniversary celebration and the Senior sponsored events to the calendar.  Of course there will be some activities added throughout the year, so be sure to check your Charger Newsletter every week during the school year to stay on top of the happenings at ACA!
