Participating in sports can develop one mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually. Sports play an important part in the total educational program at ACS. One of the major purposes in our athletic program is to train students to “have the mind of Christ” even under the pressure of competition. Our goal in academics and athletics is to develop Godly Christian character in students who are willing to be used of the Lord Jesus Christ.
