“When we first toured the Academy, we knew this place was special. It’s hard to put into words, but there is a profound sense of community. Everyone is clearly focused on creating a loving and safe environment, where our children will be challenged academically and can grow into men and women of exemplary character. The Academy is much more than a school, it’s a family.” – Academy parent
Students flourish in a nurturing environment with small class sizes that enable teachers to differentiate instruction. In Kindergarten-Eighth class, a challenging curriculum is enhanced with global studies, technology, art, music, international language and daily PE. Character formation and leadership development is emphasized. Graduates attend first-choice high schools where they regularly enroll in advanced placement classes.
“The staff and faculty have helped my children to explore the boundaries of education beyond reading, writing, math and science. The programs and traditions of the school keep a strong focus on academics while inviting children to know God through loving service, prayer and action. I could not ask for more from a school. ASH will always have a piece of my heart and to them I will forever be indebted.” – ASH parent
