We love how affordable ACA is! We have been at ACA for 3 years and have been very pleased. For us, they have the perfect balance of challenging academics, caring teachers and a loving Christ centered environment. ACA focuses on helping children achieve their best academically (My daughter is in first grade and reads fluently with amazing annunciation and characterization and writes beautifully in cursive) while also focusing on character. I love that my daughter doesn't experience the type of social pressure that exists so early in public school. They make it cool to be kind =) Also, they are very accommodating for allergies which is not a struggle we face but I know how scary that is for many families.

ACA is an awesome school! My son has been a student there since the 2 yr. old preschool class and now he is in the 5th grade. ACA has challenging academics and a loving Christian environment. My son has grown spiritually and academically. It is a great school!

We are very happy with ACA. This is our 4th year at this school and we feel that our children are not only doing wonderful academically but they are also growing as Christians. I feel good knowing that my children are receiving one on one attention from a small classroom environment and are safe and loved by everyone there.

My children have been attending Alpharetta Christian Academy for the last 12 years. The small class sizes and wonderful teachers have made their preschool and elementary experience incredible. As young children grow, you worry about everything, and I can say I have never worried once about them while they are at school. I know they are well taken care of and safe. The Christian and academic education will help guide them throughout their lives.

We are in our first year at ACA with two children in the 2 and Pre-K program. . . . I feel my children are safe in the school, and I am happy my children are in a Christ-centered environment! . . .Academically, it is solid! My daughter is on the brink of reading, and she is only four year old. . . I have watched my daughter's penmanship improve so much that I am "checking-off" another concern I had in the past with a previous school. ACA teaches the Zanier-Bloser writing technique, and this is important because not all preschools teach this technique! . . . I also feel I am respected and cared for as the parent--and not just because I write the checks. I have only been here a year, and I feel the love! It's real. I am so pleased with this school.

As third year parents of two preschoolers at Alpharetta Christian Academy, we are looking forward to our fourth year next year. We love the school for numerous reasons, but the main one is all of the teachers that have taught our children, are so nice, sweet, and loving, which is very important at this young age. They teach the basics (letters, numbers, colors, calendar, etc. . . .) in a fun and creative environment with lots of art and crafts projects as well as developing their motor skills. In addition, the school has weekly activities that include science, creative movement, music, and chapel. But, the most exciting for preschool age children are the yearly visits from fire fighters, police dogs, a trackless train, a huge tee pee, and bouncy houses. They also have annual Muffins with Moms and Donuts with Dad plus a Christmas program that shouldn't be missed. The staff and administration are just as nice friendly, loving, and helpful, too. We highly recommend this preschool to any family.

See why Heather loves ACA. . .
Heather has had a long history at ACA. Not only did she have four children at ACA, but she also was a preschool student at ACA. She had a great experience at the school and wanted the same for her children. As with other families, Heather had to sacrifice to send her children to ACA, but it was worth it. She and her children made lasting friendships with other children, parents, and teachers. Her children were well prepared for kindergarten, and their teachers noticed their strong academics and discipline. Heather says, “ACA was an amazing start to their education. They developed a love of school at a young age. Not only were they academically prepared, but they also learned how to make friends and act in the classroom.”
See why Corrie loves ACA. . .
Corrie and her husband Jeff first learned about ACA through a friend who described how her children enrolled at ACA came home knowing more scripture than her children enrolled at another Christian school. Since Corrie was searching for a Christ-centered school for her child, she came for a tour and decided to send her three year old to preschool, where mom and daughter were both very happy. When it was time for kindergarten for her first daughter and preschool for the second daughter, Corrie and Jeff prayed and toured other schools, including public schools. Corrie says, “God made it clear that they were to be at ACA, and God made a way to afford it.”
Corrie and her family are dedicated to ACA. As a way to give back to the school, Corrie is now teaching preschool and is active in the PTO. They find it academically challenging and worth the effort. Their children don’t want to go elsewhere. They have friends who have been together in class for years, and they care about each other. Corrie says the parents also care about each other. When her family was going through a recent difficulty, the ACA teachers and parents were there for support. Through ACA, their lives have become intertwined with other ACA families in a positive way.
