Dear Prospective Families,

Thank you for considering a Christian school for your child. As you seek the right school match for your family, let me take just a moment to encourage your heart.

We live in rapidly changing times, unparalleled in human history. Our ability as parents to raise our children safely and on the pathway to success is challenging at best. New obstacles – and new fears – seem to rise up daily.

But you’re not in this alone.

We’re all in this together, with the same heart and the same hopes for your children. And that’s where ALCS comes in. We are constantly and very intentionally providing an exceptional, premier private Christian school education for our children. We are fulfilling our vision of providing 21st century skills for all of our students, while simultaneously leading them to a 1st century faith that can withstand the cultural shifts and drifts assaulting their hearts and minds.

But that’s not all. We are also helping our families discover the tools they need to be successful at the most important job any of us will ever have: Parenting. Whether via links to Axis ministry’s “The Culture Translator” or through articles in our EagleLink e-newsletter or other resources, we not only purpose to educate our children in an atmosphere marked by exceptional excellence unparalleled in our region (how many schools have kids who send experiments to the International Space Station?), but we intentionally minister to our parents, as well.

You and your children are priceless treasures. We love and care about our students and their families. We consider ourselves both a school and a family; it’s who we are and what God has called us to be.

Our children must be prepared for the future at the highest performance levels possible. In a world where students face ever-accelerating change, nothing less will do.

It is a tremendous honor to serve and lead as Head of School at ALCS. It is also undeniable that all of us who are already here – administration, faculty, staff, students, parents, and extended family members – have been called and directed by God to live life together at ALCS. This has created a unique family atmosphere unlike anyplace I have ever been before.

With all my heart, I believe these things are why you need to consider being here and why it’s worth your investment and sacrifice. (And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!)

Please feel free to contact our Office Manager and Enrollment Coordinator, Mrs. Olivia Cleland, or our Administrative Assistant, Mrs. Betty Mutchler, if you have any questions.

Thank you for considering a unique, quality, and premier Christian school education for your child at ALCS. Blessings to you!

For the Glory of Christ and the Good of Our Kids,
