• Alert:

    We are excited to announce the ACHS Football Team will be headed to the FINAL FOUR play-offs in DeKalb County. Due to the shortage of bus drivers and the buses needed to transport students to the event, we will not have school on Friday, December 3rd. We have several staff involved as coaches, instructors, and parents who will also be traveling to this event. Therefore, there will be a shortage of staff and substitutes for Friday. LET'S SUPPORT OUR PIRATE FOOTBALL TEAM in this next level of competition! This information will be posted on our Facebook Alert, system Website, and all other Media Sources.

    Thank you for your understanding and help in supporting our students and staff.
