Our rapidly changing world creates a need for our children to develop skills and gain experiences that make sense in the 21st century. Our children will need to be able to participate meaningfully and productively in a global economy and be able to adapt to constantly changing technology. The world our children will live in requires a new type of skills and readiness.

We at ACPA know this and have created a learning environment that is engaging for students and creates opportunities for them to gain the skills and experiences they will need to be successful in college and in life.

ACPA graduates flourish in college and their careers because they have learned how to think critically, to read widely and deeply, to adapt, to innovate, to collaborate, to solve complex problems, to draw upon what they know to figure out what they don’t know yet, to communicate through a variety of mediums, to write across the subjects and genres and, most importantly, to inquire and reflect.

These skills serve ACPA grads well, wherever their future paths may lead! I am excited about the possibility of welcoming you and your child into the ACPA community. Please feel free to contact me to set up a meeting, a tour and to find out more about our unique learning environment.
