The objective of a private Christian school is to obey the scriptural imperatives of Deuteronomy 6:5-7a:“...Love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto the children...” Proverbs 22:6 states “Train up a child in the way he should go...” Teaching is training, and training for life must include training for the KINGDOM.
Attendance at Appling Christian Academy is a privilege, not a right. The goal of the academy is not to reform, but to train young people to become Christian leaders possessing self-discipline, integrity, and a love for Christ. This is accomplished while providing a quality academic education.
Appling Christian Academy was established in 1984 to serve families from all Christian denominations who desire a biblically-based education for their children. Our academic curriculum, principles, and moral standards are grounded in historic Christian faith.
The academy admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. A.C.A. does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin.
The motto of ACA is Blending Biblical Values with Educational Pursuits. Appling Christian Academy holds full accreditation with the Georgia Private School Accreditation Council (GAPSAC). This is one of three accrediting bodies in Georgia and is recognized by the State of Georgia. A.C.A. graduates may enroll in any University System of Georgia college or university without having to meet any requirements that are not required of public school graduates. ACA graduates are eligible for the Hope Scholarship and the STAR Student Program if they meet necessary state-wide requirements. Appling Christian Academy is a member of the Georgia Association of Christian Schools (GACS) and the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS).
The pre-kindergarten day care is licensed by the Georgia Department of Human Resources. Our staff complies with all state regulations including yearly training classes for personnel and C.P.R./first-aid certification.
