Spiritual Challenge Week
Students in Grades K5-12 will participate in Spiritual Challenge Week beginning October 1, 2018.  Please check your student’s backpack or view the attached letters for important information. 

See You at the Pole
See You at the Pole (SYATP) began in 1990 with just ten students praying at their school. This grass roots movement began due to students no longer being permitted to pray in their public school. SYATP has grown to be a global event with millions of students praying, sharing scripture, and worshipping the Lord around their flagpole on the fourth Wednesday in September each year.

ACA’s SYATP event was dedicated to a time of worship, devotion, and prayer.  Our senior class stepped up to the challenge, along with their Bible teacher and campus pastor, David Ramos. The Elementary Praise Team started the morning off with worship, followed by our High School Praise Team, both doing a phenomenal job!  Pastor Ramos passionately shared a message to us all encouraging everyone to pray without ceasing!  He challenged our students to love Jesus with all their heart and to bring Jesus back to a hurting world.  It starts with us!  Are we willing to say we love Jesus?  Are we willing to pray?  Are we willing to "Join the Story"?

His message was followed by a group of our seniors, each inviting us to pray with them.  We spent time praying for our nation, our community, our school, those affected by Hurricane Florence, and all of our ACA families.  

We are so blessed to be in a Christian school!  How beautiful it was to come together and pray in one accord! 

 


Go Green Club will be having an interest meeting on Tuesday, October 2 from 3:00-3:30pm in Mrs. Rebour's Room (4203 above the gym). Students in Grades 7-12 are welcome to join! 



Class of 2021 Spiritual Retreat 
Students in Grade 10 enjoyed a special devotional time on campus with Pastor Ramos, and then loaded the bus for Adrenaline Trampoline Park in Lake Worth today.  They then headed to Okeeheelee Park for lunch and some team building games.  We were excited to offer our students a day to bond as a class and cultivate friendships!

Seniors will take part in a high ropes course, rappelling, and white water rafting, all while enjoying s'mores and the beautiful change of seasons in Copperhill, Tennessee!  This is an amazing time for our students to draw close to one another as they deepen their relationship with the Lord.

Please submit the last payment of $125.00 to the school office by October 5.
