Join us at the Hen House Breakfast this Saturday, September 22nd, 9:00 at “All About Cha” in Broken Arrow (820 N. Aspen Ave. just south of 71st)  We will have fellowship, great food, and a little bit of business to cover! All ACA women are welcome!


Next Monday, September 24th, will be our first Salt & Light Secondary Chapel of the year. Our guest speaker this month will be Arthur Greeno. Mr. Greeno runs two successful Chick-Fil-A franchises here in Tulsa, is an Amazon best selling author and has accomplished 2 Guinness World Records. He also serves as the Secretory for the Board of Directors of Tulsa Pop Kids, an effort to promote literacy programs for children through pop culture and entertainment. Secondary students must be in High Convocation on Monday! The class schedule will be adjusted to allow our guests more time in chapel. Please see the adjusted schedule attached below. Parents are welcome to attend. Chapel begins promptly at 9:55 and will run until 10:55 with a Q&A segment at the end.


Fun for the whole family!  Family Game Night will be next Friday, September 28, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. in the ACA main building.  There will be table games, card games, video games, Giant Chess, Spike Ball, and more for families to play together or against each other!  Cost is $2 per person with a maximum of $10 per family. Home baked goodies & salty snacks will be available to purchase. Join us for an evening of friendly competitions!  This event is sponsored by the 8th Graders and proceeds go toward their spring trip.


We need to ask that our ACA families not park in the Akdar Shriner’s parking lots. On Friday evening, we were informed that we no longer have permission to park in either of the Shriner parking lots. It is our desire to reconcile this with their leadership, and we will work to do so; but, in the meantime, we must ask that you use the ACA parking lot for all activities until we are able to resolve their concerns. There may also be times when the Vision Family Ministries parking lot is unavailable for use, and we will post signage if we are unable to use that parking during events. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


The October monthly lunch order form is attached below and is available in the school office.  If you are ordering for the month, please turn in your order form and payment by September 28th.  Students may still order first thing each day and may still use a lunch ledger; this order form is for your convenience.




There are many great college events coming up this fall and we want to let you know about them.  High school students and parents should make an effort to attend as many as possible as they will learn a great deal about the college search process, college admissions and various colleges and universities themselves.  If you have questions about any of these events, please call Mrs. Collingsworth at 918-724-4396 or email her at [email protected]

4th Annual COLLEGE NIGHT at ACA - THIS FRIDAY, September 21st from 6:30-9:00 pm.  We will have 7-8 representatives from both public and private universities on our campus, sharing information about their respective schools.  We will also have the Director of Financial Aid at JBU with us sharing about all things financial aid. You don’t want to miss this event!! You will learn a lot about the college process during the evening.  There will be a Q&A time as well as time to visit individually with all of the representatives. We will also be serving coffee and desserts! This is a free event that is open to the public, so please invite other families of high school students to attend.  ACA STUDENTS WHO ATTEND COLLEGE NIGHT WILL RECEIVE AN ORANGE HOMEWORK COUPON!!!

4th Annual FAFSA Night - Friday, October 5th from 6:00-8:00pm.  This is a free event offered by ACA and NSU-BA.  Financial aid specialist, Bobbi McKinney, will be with us again to help interested senior families complete their FAFSA.  Please come with your tax information from this past spring. If you would like to take advantage of this great opportunity, please have both your student and parent FSA ID’s already created a few days before the event.  You can’t complete the FAFSA without them. The seniors have all of this information in the packet that I already prepared and gave them. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me.

Chad Cargill ACT Prep Class - Tuesday, November 6th from 8:30-11:30am.  This class is offered on our campus once a year.  It has been a popular class for our ACA students in the past, so we are happy that we are able to offer it again this year.  Cost of the class is $35/student and will include hand-outs as well as his presentation of great test-taking strategies. Mr. Cargill will also have his prep book for sale the day of the class for those interested in purchasing it.  Please sign up with Ms. Becki in the office. This event is also open to the public, so homeschool students are welcome to participate. Please spread the word to your homeschooling friends!

PLC (President’s Leadership Class) Conference at NSU Tahlequah - Thursday, November 8th.  This is a full day of leadership activities offered by NSU’s President’s Leadership Class.  Interested ACA students have attended this the past three years and have enjoyed it each time.  There is a PLC scholarship that students can apply for that can pay their entire college cost at NSU, if chosen as a PLC member.  Students will learn about this scholarship during their day on campus. There is a cost to attend this conference and I will send out that information as soon as it is available.  


If you are looking for a family to car-pool with for school this year, we can help you find someone who lives close to you.  We have a map that shows where all of our school families are located. Because it is a private map, you will need to contact the school office for the website and password.  918-832-4600 or [email protected]


The school office is open Monday - Friday, 8:00 to 5:00.  If you need to reach someone outside of office hours, please email [email protected] .
