We challenge students intellectually; inspire their confidence, curiosity, and creativity; and prepare them to thrive in a diverse and complex world by ensuring that they are independent learners, effective communicators, community minded citizens, and balanced individuals. The Mission of ACDS is expressed best through the experiences of our students, so we invite you to read their stories on the following pages. Then, come visit and see our students and teachers in action. We look forward to getting to know you as you discover what an ACDS education can offer your child. WELCOME TO ACDS
