Message from the Headmaster



On behalf of the students, parents, faculty, and the Board of Directors, welcome to our website. Included in the site is a wealth of current news, general information, academic features, extra-curricular opportunities, and our educational mission.

Beginning in 1970, Abbeville Christian Academy (ACA) has become a strong college preparatory school serving southeast Alabama and southwest Georgia. As a member of the Alabama Independent School Association, ACA provides an array of academic, extra-curricular, and athletic programs to meet the talents, interests, demands, and needs of our student population. ACA is grounded in a firm set of beliefs, ethics, morals, and goals that help establish the focus of our programs.

While the world is focusing on competitive skills, technological based instruction, and “hurry up” curriculum, ACA has kept a historical belief of the student-centered school and community, application learning, and building relationships. By placing students as the focus, ACA has developed qualified, responsible, skillful, and successful alumni, who continue to experience success in their respective careers.

Although there is a wealth of information found on this website, I personally invite you to visit our campus. ACA is truly a family school founded upon Christian values, lifestyles, respect, and care for one another. This care and treatment of our students have been the hallmark of ACA for over forty years.

Come visit Abbeville Christian Academy and you will quickly understand the school’s family attitude, the educational mission, the goals, and aspirations. ACA is not just a school; it’s an experience!
