From Current Families
“We want our kids to know that they are special in their own unique ways. We want their teachers to recognize that, too. We have been so happy with our decision to send them to ACS. My kids know they are special and loved by everyone at ACS and that God has a plan for them.”
“I want my children to fall in love with Jesus. It is my prayer that attending ACS, where a relationship with Christ is made a priority and where God is part of every subject area, will help them do just that.”
“After preschool, we couldn’t imagine leaving. ACS is a loving, safe environment where our children are prepared for life beyond elementary school. A Christ-centered education delivered by teachers living by example.”
“Because it is Christ-centered and because of the one on one attention our children receive.”
“We chose ACS because of the teaching of Christian values and because of the smaller class sizes.”
“Christian education! Learning takes place in every school, but when all learning has the foundation of God’s Word, it is more relevant, more accurate, and builds faith. We want our kids to be prepared for the challenges they WILL face in life, and ACS is one of our partners in that preparation.”
"We chose ACS because of the stories we had heard of what God is doing there in the lives of students and teachers."
"The love the teachers have for the kids and God is very evident. With kids spending so many hours away from us during the school day we wanted teachers that are good Godly influences on our kids."
From Parents, About the Staff
"Parenting is not easy, so I am incredibly thankful for the amazing support and help we have received from the teachers at ACS! All of our children have been loved and strengthened in their faith under the care of teachers who have knowledge and insight about them that would have been missed if we were raising them without such support. We praise God for this gift in their lives!"
"The teachers at ACS are FANTASTIC. They not only desire for our kids to be safe, nurtured, and educated but they also care about our kids' relationship with Christ. More than just 'Bible class' they pour their own deep relationships with Christ into every aspect of the day. They also model Christ to our kids through the good times and bad which helps students express their faith in the same way in their own lives."
"ACS teachers are amazing! They deeply care for each student. Our daughter had some emotional issues during her school year.... It was so encouraging to hear from the teacher that she was praying for our child and the teacher also found ways within school to help nurture our child to learn to deal with their emotions better. Specifically, she choose a book for independent reading that challenged our child to work through some of the emotional issues. It's these small things that mean so much!"
"The staff at ACS is wonderful! We can see the deep love they have for their students and for God, which makes it a little easier when dropping our daughter off at school! We know she is in great hands!"
"The teachers are incredible. They pay attention to each individual kid and situation, they adapt appropriately, and they care. They care so deeply for the kids. AMAZING!!!! They TRULY CARE!"
“We love the teachers! ACS has great staff who truly care for our kids!”
“I have loved every teacher my kids have had, I feel confident entrusting my children to them and that they will love my kids and train them and point them toward their Heavenly Father.”
“The professionalism of the staff, but also their personal side- showing compassion and understanding to each family is unique and Christ-centered. I also admire the cooperative component. ACS staff seems to work well together, challenging students, but enjoying their professional roles with one another.”
From Parents, About the School
“All I have to say is if you are questioning whether you should spend the money for an ACS education, go to a chapel at ACS and experience the passion for Christ and the children. It brings tears to my eyes and confirms why I choose to have faith and not worry about the cost! God will provide!”
"We are blessed to have our teachers and staff participating in Teaching for Transformation (TfT), where they are integrating Biblical themes and values into every subject and interaction with our kids. It helps the students to realize that being Christian impacts every day and every relationship, and that it is important to think about and act on their deep hopes for their life."
"We are excited to see an almost instant change in the demeanor of our boys from having a third Christian support leg in their lives aside from church and home. Seeing the Lord in everything is critically essential to having a Christian world view and having enough of that knowledge in your head to make a God-honoring choice. We love the idea of how this ripple effect can come from every subject at school."
"I've watched as my kids faith has grown. I've listened to them pray in ways that I didn't expect and to show their faith in action by loving the people around them. Through this, my own faith is strengthened because of what ACS has done in my kids."
"We are thoroughly enjoying our experience, and are so grateful that the Lord has led us to Allendale Christian school. We are excited to watch our children grow not only educationally but also in the Lord! Lastly...I have been blessed by how PERFECT of a fit each teacher has been for each child!"
“I love the way God is part of everything that the kids do and learn!“
“At ACS, there is a genuine Christian atmosphere, from the people to the teachers to the curriculum.”
“We are a new family to ACS this year and we have been so impressed at every level — quality of administration, teachers, LOVE the hot lunch program, as well as after school care….and the best thing is the fact my daughter LOVES to go to school everyday. She transferred later in the school year and it has been a great transition for her.”
“I love that my children are taught how to pray and learn to pray for each other. I like that the older students are paired with a younger student and are given opportunities to spend time together throughout the year.”
"The best part for me is when I ask them what they learn, their first answer is about God! There have been many times when my daughter has come home singing praise music. She hears it at home and at church but I think it leaves a stronger impression on her to see and hear her peers praising God."
