“Building Christian Character for Tomorrow’s Leaders!”
“The vision of Ankeny Christian Academy is that our students will attain an excellent Christ-centered education that will lead them to live both morally and ethically. This will successfully prepare our students to live, work, and raise their families according to the standards of Christ as they assume their adult roles in society and carry out the principles of the Great Commission.”
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
The mandate for Christian education comes from God directing His people to teach their children diligently the laws of the Lord. (Deuteronomy 6:7) The Christian school acts as an extension of the family and of the church to help families bring up their children in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord” as God has directed in Ephesians 6:4.
Each ACA student must come from a home where at least one parent or guardian is a professing born-again Christian.
