General School Mission

"AACA has embraced a unique mission. AACA continues to build a school-day curriculum with an intensified arts focus and also continues to develop enhanced extracurricular activities in the areas of dance, drama and art. A faith-based Catholic education rich in tradition will always be a part of the AACA story, but the arts focus allows our children to bring a fresh perspective to learning." - Taken from website
