CONGRATS, CLASS OF 2019!  This past Saturday we said farewell to an extremely gifted group of Seniors from the Class of 2019.  These talented and hardworking students are headed to colleges and universities throughout the U.S. to continue their education.
 
This unique class was awarded more than $2.5 million in academic and athletic scholarship money.  But even more impressive is the fact that an amazing 70% of this year's class qualified for Zell Miller or Hope Scholarships!
 
In addition to remarks by Valedictorian, Philip Schroeder, and  Salutatorian, True Foley, six Seniors gave personal testimonies about their relationship with God and their years at ACS.  We are so proud of our Seniors and know they will do great things!
