Who We Are

 

Arcadia Christian School was originally founded in 1945 by a group of parents who wished to provide a Christian education for their children. Their vision sought to combine academic excellence and Biblical instruction of the Lord.

Today, Arcadia Christian School continues that rich tradition for grades preschool to eighth.  ACS offers a life-changing education that prepares students for lifelong learning and leadership, encouraging students to make a positive impact for Jesus Christ in their community.  ACS also offers a rich academic experience that develops critical thinking, connecting theory and practice.

Less than 15 miles east of Los Angeles, Arcadia Christian School is  located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, and retains the serenity of a foothill community.  Arcadia is home to the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden, and for the second year in a row, Bloomberg Businessweek named Arcadia one of the “Best Places to Raise Your Kids: 2010”.

 

Heritage

Arcadia Christian School was originally founded by a concerned group of parents from the Arcadia Christian Reformed Church who wished to provide a Christian education for their children. Their vision was to provide an educational setting that would assist parents with their responsibility to raise their children in the nurture and instruction of the Lord. In 1945, it was incorporated as the Christian School Society of Arcadia, an independent organization. Today Arcadia Christian School still strives to provide this Christian education through a commitment to educational excellence and Biblical values.
