ABBOTSFORD CHRISTIAN SCHOOL

School is back in session at Abbotsford Christian School for our 60th year. What started in 1953 as a class of 90 grade 1-7 students in the basement of a church, has grown to include pre-school, middle and secondary students, and has sent out more than 3,000 outstanding young adults into our local community and beyond. We want to say thank you for entrusting us with the education of your children and we look forward to what the future holds. Please join us in our celebration while we look back at our heritage and forward to our future.

ACS

afteR 60 Years, we are ProUd of a few ThiNgs

> Two campuses that serve pre-school to Grade 12 > Sought after pre-school with annual wait-list > Recognized by BC’s Ministry of Education as province-wide leaders in Project Based Learning approach > Fraser Institute Report 2013: ACS Secondary has best 5 year average in Abbotsford > Top-ranked athletics program > Nationally acclaimed music program > Student-led drama program that sells out performances every year > Special Education program most highly recommended in the city > Local Service program that serves and makes a difference in Abbotsford > Proud participants in the “Abbotsford City of Character” initiative

ouR whOle peRson phIlosophY Although receiving recognition for it, high academic achievement is one measure of success for our children, but it is far from the only one. Every student is different, and success looks different in every case. We take into account the entire person, helping them to develop a firm Christian worldview, and equipping them to help shape God’s world. All students are accepted, valued and encouraged at ACS, and as a result, they flourish. We call this Whole Person Development and we believe it prepares students for real life.

> Ongoing leaders in “Run for Water” > Global Connections program that builds student relationships with sister schools overseas
