    My son just started the Kindergarten program and he is excelling. The Principal teachers and parents are highly motivated and involved. I am so proud to be affiliated with the school. Originally my husband and I were looking at sending him to a private school but did our research and settled on ACCS. I could not be happier. The academics wonderful warm environment and dedicated teachers and staff all work closely with the Principal. The school really is a gem and I would recommend it to other parents for the safe keeping of their most precious assets.

    My son oldest son just son just graduated from ACCS I have another son still attending and my youngest will be attending next year. The staff is caring and dedicated the curriculum exemplary the children love it and the parent's involvement is very much encouraged with school's motto Where Parent's Are Partners And Children Succeed" and the test scores prove just how dynamic this school is!

    I will have 3 children attending this 09-10 school year. This will be my 8 year old's 4th year there and I could not be happier. I am very please not only with academics but with the values and principals that my children are obtaining here. I moved to the North Colonie School District last year but kept my kids at ACCS. So many people say I am crazy for not switching my kids to NC one of the top rated school districts in the state. I can now proudly say that my children attend the BEST school in this area. Who's the best? ACCS!!!
