Elementary Students Grow Together in Faith, Friendships, Academics, and Achievements.

 

Alpharetta Christian Academy develops the whole child and values each student as a special creation of God. In a safe and family-oriented environment, our students learn responsibility and accountability while excelling at our Christian curriculum that exceeds Common Core standards. We go beyond typical grade-level expectations, as well as teach time-honored fundamentals including cursive, spelling, Bible verse memorization, and math computation. The Shurley English curriculum gives students a strong understanding of grammar and sentence structure which carries over to student compositions. In addition to the core curriculum, elementary students receive instruction in the following weekly specials: music, art, Spanish, character development, computer, media, P.E., and chapel. Small classes staffed with a full-time assistant foster individual attention and the ability to teach to each child while building relationships with the teachers and other students. This small size with assistant combination enables teachers to conduct hands-on activities which require extra supervision. To prepare students technologically, ACA has a computer center and classrooms equipped with Apple TV and iPads that students use to learn skills such as coding, video editing, and building presentations.

Learning at ACA is not limited to the classroom. Each grade takes a minimum of two outside field trips with additional in-house field trips throughout the year.  The Atlanta Opera, Canine Assistants, Challenge Island, and the Science Academy have all provided programs at ACA. The fifth grade takes a memorable overnight field trip in the spring to a fun educational destination such as the Tybee Island 4-H Center.

The ACA PTO, known as the Eagle’s Club, is an active parent organization which supports the school and promotes friendships with each other. The Eagle’s Club sponsors family nights, play dates, coffee talks, and scarecrows for the Alpharetta Harvest Festival.

Elementary after care is available for working parents. Outside vendors provide after school activities such as Challenge Island Stem Programs, Karate, Rooted Music, Peacock Dance, Brainy Bytes robotics, and Out of the Box Art.

We would love to hear from you. To schedule a tour, call 770-475-5762 or email Debbie Burleson at dburleson@fbca.com.

Alpharetta Christian Academy is open to all students regardless of race, color, creed or national origin.

"I had to write to let you know how impressed I am with how much my son is learning and progressing after just one week at ACA. He read to me tonight and I almost cried tears of joy! His reading has improved so much in just one week. I know he still has a long way to go, but I am seeing improvement and I am so thankful. After spending 3 years going round and round with the teachers and administration at his former school, I am overjoyed that he is finally receiving the attention and help that he needs. This is truly an answer to prayer! After seeing the improvement in only one week, I am encouraged he will be a fluent reader (finally!) by the end of the year. A huge thank you to his teachers for all of their work with my son as well as the other children. We are so thankful that God lead us to ACA!
