Makers Week is only a week away at ACS and we are looking forward to a great week. We still need a few more items. We are collecting toilet paper and paper towel rolls as well as small boxes (check boxes, card boxes, etc.). Additionally, we need a few more items purchased. Please check out the Sign-Up Genius link to let us know you can take care of that need for us. We will have a spot set up in the rotunda to bring items in by Friday, March 22. Thank you for your support!

FACTS Tuition Assistance for 2019-2020  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 https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3Z45H  The application information will be easily accessible data from your 2018 tax return, along with financial accounts, and will require that copies of confirming tax documents be sent to the FACTS center.  The FACTS organization will analyze the information of each applicant. They will provide our school with recommended grant amounts based on need and financial status. 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. Applications must be submitted by March 31, 2019. The application fee will be paid by the participating schools.
