Ideal Education, Practical Results

Whether it’s the college readiness index, Verbal, Math, or Writing SAT performance, or ACT scores, students at ACCS member schools score above all other types of schools— public, religious, and even independent.  Independent schools are typically college preparatory schools that charge an average of $20,000 per year.*  Our schools outperform all of these categories, charging much lower tuition— averaging under $8000 per year.

While you might expect our students to excel in verbal and reading scores, our schools were also the top performing in math.  And, our schools place students in nearly every selective college in the country.

But it’s not just the numbers that are impressive.  If you visit any of our schools, particularly the ones with high schools, you’ll notice the difference in manners, poise, and wisdom.  The ACCS president visits dozens of ACCS member schools every year:

“One thing that still surprises me are the juniors and seniors I meet when I visit schools.  School to school, state to state, wherever I go, the students stand out.  I can have a conversation with them about important things, deeper things right in the school cafeteria.  They’re confident, and polite.  They cheerfully greet me in the hallways.  They think.  They’re the kind of kids I want my own children to become.”

David Goodwin, President, ACCS
