Partners in Christian Education
Since the mid 1940’s, Ada Christian School has been blessed with committed supporters of its mission to equip students for service in God’s world. Many have invested much to carry forward a tradition of excellence in Christ centered education at Ada Christian School.
In 1950 at a meeting of the school society it was decided that it was time to build a two-room school. The treasurer reported a balance of $4.35. They planned a fund drive – and it did not go well. Clarence Andre came forward and wrote a check for $500, which was more than he could spare. He was determined that there would be an Ada Christian School.
With thousands of graduates carrying our mission into the world, we remain committed to providing the same opportunity for the generations to come. Together we can make a difference.
Here are a few ways that we need your support
Volunteer your time
There are hundreds of opportunities for parent involvement in all areas of your child's education and growth at ACS. You will see opportunities to serve on a variety of school initiatives throughout the school year. These are shared in our weekly school newsletter, The Ada Connection.
Learn more about how you can support ACS through volunteering your time and effort.
Pray with us
We are a community grounded in prayer. We are blessed to know that students, teachers, parents, grandparents and many others pray daily for our school and in support of our mission to equip students for service in God's world. Please join us in this vital effort.
If you would like to support ACS in prayer along with other parents, join us each week for Moms in Prayer.
Donate to Ada Christian School
Each year there are three ways for you to partner with us in our mission:
- Give to the Annual Fund
The ACS Annual Fund, Ada Christian’s annual giving program, is the school’s top fundraising priority. When you give a gift to The ACS Annual Fund, you make an immediate impact to the students, faculty, and vibrant educational programs that distinguish our school. Your gift signals your confidence in our mission of equipping students for service in God’s world by integrating academic excellence with a distinctly Christian perspective.
- Contribute to the ACS Education Foundation
A group of parents developed a plan to ensure the future of Ada Christian School by creating the Ada Christian School Education Foundation. The purpose was to build an endowment fund from which earnings could be used to support Ada Christian School by reducing the cost of tuition for all families, providing need-based financial aid, underwriting important academic programs, and sustaining facility maintenance. Each year, we hold our Annual Dinner and the proceeds go directly to the Ada Christian School Education Foundation. Other commitments in the form of bequests and planned gifts provide significant support for the Foundation’s advancement.
