SAVE THE DATE - APRIL 27
Important Save The Date Announcement for Friday, April 27th
ACA has been encouraging young minds to Think, Reason, and Persuade from a distinctly Christian perspective for over 20 years! We are excited to continue building on a rich history of unique and even quirky traditions that make us ACA. We are bringing together ACA families, past, present, and even future, for an evening of music and fellowship. The focus of the evening will be the launching of the NEXT 20 years; or, in keeping with our musical theme, we are “Arranging A New Score!” So important is this event, that the Board of Governors and Administration have decided to make this the primary focus of this years fundraising efforts. With this in mind, we have decided to forego this years’ Annual Trivia Night. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but encourage you to set aside April 27 for an incredible evening with your ACA family. Watch for more information coming soon!
CHRISTIAN COLLEGE FAIR
On Tuesday evening, February 27th, ACA will be hosting our 2nd Annual Christian College Fair from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. It will be held at Highland Park Christian Church at 5708 E. 31st St, Tulsa. At the moment we have 14 Christian colleges and universities registered to come visit with students and parents! We are asking students to register for their barcode before coming. They don’t have to register to attend, but having a barcode will save them time at each school’s table. The representative from each school will scan the student’s barcode and the student won’t have to fill out their personal info at each and every table. Go to myblueprintstory.com to register for your barcode.
There will also be a financial aid presentation from 7:30 - 8:00 p.m. This is a very helpful resource for families no matter where your student decides to attend college. There will be time to ask the financial aid representative questions after the presentation. Please plan on attending this year’s Christian College Fair! You will learn so much about each college and get your financial aid questions answered - in only two hours!
See the flyer attached below and share this information with your friends who have high school students! The event is open to the public and is totally free to attend! If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Collingsworth at 918-724-4396 (c) or 918-832-4600 (o).
