        What a joy and a privilege it is to be the principal of this fantastic school! As an established and vibrant member of the Akron community, Arlington Christian Academy (ACA) has prepared students for academic success for over 30 years. Each ACA student participates in educational experiences that reflect our strong academic curriculum and focus on state mandated core-curriculum standards. At Arlington Christian Academy the teachers, staff and I promise to create a safe, warm, caring environment with a rigorous curriculum. We are confident that we can meet the needs of students to create an exemplary professional learning community that soars! We look forward to sharing an exciting journey together during your child’s elementary and middle school years. 
        The administration, staff, and students at ACA understand the importance of parents in the educational process. We encourage our parents and community to support our students by joining the PTA or becoming a volunteer. We know that strong parental support is needed to show a clear connection between home and school and to guarantee student’s academic success. We look forward to developing a partnership with parents in order to share in the experience of watching our students grow academically and socially throughout this school year.  

          Our staff is dedicated to creating a safe and productive learning environment. This process begins with a blending of creativity, innovation, and rigor to produce high academic expectations while providing experiences that will continue to foster a love for learning. It is our intention at ACA to work with every student to positively impact achievement and improve his or her ability to think critically. 

    Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via telephone, email or a scheduled visit.
