Alpharetta Christian Academy is open to all students regardless of race, color, creed or national origin. Applicants for all classes must have attained class age by September 1. ACA provides a loving environment which has the flexibility to meet the needs of individual students. Teachers use phonics to provide the basis for reading. Math builds on concepts which are continuously reviewed to increase the retention of math knowledge. Emphasis is placed on math facts, which lay the foundation for higher level thinking. In addition, elementary students participate in Spanish, P.E., art, media, music, computer, chorus, drama, etiquette, and character development.
At Alpharetta Christian Academy, students are learning that they can make a difference in the world. Beginning in kindergarten, each grade participates in at least one service project. Projects are age appropriate, ranging from kindergartners donating shoe boxes to Operation Christmas Child to fifth graders serving lunch to City of Alpharetta workers. Whether it's serving those outside the school or courtesy in the classroom, ACA students learn to consider and actively help others.
On Thursday mornings, students have the opportunity to attend Binder Buddies before school. It is a class where students learn organizational and study skills. With the assistance of the teacher, they clean out backpacks and check agendas, which are a crucial component to learning self-sufficiency and organizational skills. Once this is done, they study spelling words.
