One evening in 1970 a group of parents met, determined to find a solution to their common concern: the lack of educational options that fit with their Christian worldview. They desired to provide their children with an academically-excellent, biblically-based education which would complement the teaching they were already receiving at home and church, preparing them for college and to be future Christian leaders.
With a sense of excitement and anticipation, this group of parents established the constitution and by-laws of a new Christian school. The newly-formed parent association created a Board of Directors to govern the School and appoint its Head. The doors of Annapolis Area Christian School opened in 1971 with three teachers and 32 students (grades K-3). The school flourished and grew, reaching a milestone in 1985 when 12 students had the distinction of becoming Annapolis Area Christian School's first high school graduates.
Three decades after those initial meetings, God's direction and blessing have been evident—AACS has grown into a robust community of learning that is setting a standard for Christian education. A faculty of 110 runs a complete college preparatory program of rigorous academics, enhanced with electives and extracurricular activities for nearly 850 students (Pre-K through grade 12) on now four campuses. Our third campus was made possible by a gift of land which made new and wonderful things possible for our school in the 21st century. T
