Each week ACA conducts two chapel services, one for elementary students and one for 7-12th grade students. Many local Pastors and Missionaries share a message at both chapels. The elementary chapel includes: singing, prayer; and a brief message. Students play a major role in secondary chapel. Secondary students are led through worship and prayer by the chapel team.
Social activities include student government, class socials, formal homecoming banquet, high school retreats, leadership weekends, and class trips including a trip to Washington DC. Community service activities are also included in the high school curriculum to help students become socially responsible. These include community activities and local charity outreaches.
The secondary curriculum is designed to provide a selection of college preparatory coursework for future collegiate studies. Our graduates have been accepted to many Colleges and Universities. Several have received both sport and academic scholarships. A recent ACA graduate received a $4000.00 scholarship to Iowa State University for class rank and another received a full ride $65,000 scholarship to AIB for an accounting degree.
