At a Glance

“The personal attention at ACDS has been exceptional. It’s not an individual academic program but it’s personalized. We’ve had many teachers over the years make adjustments to curriculum to provide additional challenge for our kids.”

Steven Duffield, current parent

“My son is thriving in this creative and kind community. This is the kind of school where you can tell immediately that the teachers love their jobs and their students, it shows in every interaction. My second grader is growing more independent and confident every day and the teachers do an excellent job teaching the importance of both personal responsibility and critical thinking.”

Susan Howells, current parent

“At ACDS we care for each other both inside the walls and outside the doors. I appreciate that a lot of the service projects we do are instilling in our children the fact that they are the change that we want to see in the world.”

Kisha Morris, current parent

“ACDS has allowed for tremendous growth for my children academically. Since joining this nurturing community, they have a renewed love of learning and confidence.”

Kristin Whitman, Current Parent

“Our family couldn’t be happier with ACDS. The staff and faculty devote an extraordinary amount of time and energy creating a prefect balance of academic rigor and emotional development. In the short time we’ve been part of the ACDS family, we’ve witnessed measurable advancement in our daughter’s competence, courage, and love of learning. The learning environment at ACDS challenges and inspires your child to pursue their full potential.”

Lawrence Nunn, Current Parent
