“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.”

"What really stands out to me is the way ACDS fosters strong relationships between the students and faculty. Our daughter’s teachers and coaches each knew her as an individual, understood her strengths and challenges and helped her reach her potential. As a result, she developed great confidence and self advocacy skills that she will need the rest of her life, both inside and outside of the classroom."
