Tuition Assistance for 2020-21
ACS participates in FACTS, a grant application program for our school. Completion of the FACTS application is a requirement for next year's enrollment if you are expecting a remaining balance at the end of the school year or you will be requesting tuition assistance. Families who wish to apply for tuition assistance will need to use the FACTS application format online at
Parents who have children in more than one of the participating schools need only to fill out the application one time-the information will be available to other Christian schools where their children attend. The application fee will be paid by the participating schools.
Important School Item Drop-off
Just like we have done with the packet pick-up sessions, we now need to schedule a time for families to drop-off items that need to be returned to school. This includes tech devices, musical instruments, classroom books and supplies, papers for teachers, etc. We will try to do this with the exact same timelines and schedules that were done in the past for packet pick-ups.
Drop-off Date: Monday, June 1
(Rain date/back-up date for families that cannot make it on Monday will be Tuesday, June 2)
The tables for drop off will be in front of school, labeled for each teacher. There will also be labeled areas for library books and band instruments. There will likely be a staff member available to answer questions as well.
Please do your best to come during the following times (based on last name). If your time does not work, you are able to come during one of the other times below.
A-H: 9am - 10:30am
I-O: 10:30am - 12:00pm
P-Z: 12:00pm - 1:30pm
If you desire to give a year-end gift to your child's teacher,
please consider using the drop-off day as an opportunity to set the gift on the drop-off table for that teacher.
