Become an ACAdemy Annual Fund Donor today!

Dear Friends,

As we continue on the exciting journey at Alabama Christian Academy, we want to remind you that ACA is God's school, further, it is your school! We realize that a strong partnership with you is critical to the future success at ACA. Many of you understand fully the challenges of operating a Christian private school. The Board of Directors is committed to keeping tuition as affordable as possible, while not compromising our opporutnity to provide excellence in education. That being stated, tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating a child at ACA.

We are asking ALL of you to become an ACAdemy Annual Fund Donor at Alabama Christian Academy and reach our goal of $250,000.

Soar Eagles!

Dr. Misty Overman

ACA Names Mr & Miss ACA and Mr & Miss Citizenship

The two highest awards given to ACA seniors are Mr. & Miss ACA and Mr. & Miss Citizenship. The students recognized with these awards represent the best qualities of our students and our school. Two seniors, who exemplify a cooperative spirit, are school-minded and demonstrate an orientation of service toward others. These students do not necessarily have to excel academically or be strong leaders, but they do treat fellow students with respect and go out of the way to make a difference in the lives of those who need help or encouragement. These students have a passion to make ACA, and their surrounding community, better places.

This year’s Mr. Citizenship is very involved in the work of his church & he has also led in chapel here at school. He maintains a positive spirit toward others and is always ready to help and give of his talents. He is friendly & out-going, encouraging of others and sets a great example of the kind of citizen that ACA desires to foster in its students. His charm & warm smile got him selected by the yearbook staff to be a Montala escort earlier this year. This year’s recipient of the Mr. Citizenship award is Hunter Joiner.

The winner of this year’s Miss Citizenship is cooperative in spirit and in deed. She respects her fellow students and is willing to reach out to them in times of need. She demonstrates excellence in academics, leadership & spirituality. This student does not seek the limelight, but goes about quietly serving and being a wonderful role model for younger girls. She is both kind and considerate of others. Whether, in the classroom or on the basketball court, this young lady is motivated, determined and gives her all. This year’s recipient is Alyssa Harrell.

Mr. & Miss ACA are the two students who best represent our school. These individuals exemplify overall excellence in academics, leadership and spirituality. They possess high levels of integrity, self-discipline and courage. This young man and woman have led their lives in such a manner that we are proud to have them represent Alabama Christian Academy in every capacity.

Mr. ACA for 2015 is a young man who is the epitome of excellence in academics, leadership & spirituality. He is respectful, polite and courteous. He is goal-driven and takes the initiative to find a solution to every problem or obstacle encountered. He is an individual of integrity whose positive attitude makes him a superb role model for younger students. As ACA’s band drum major over the past 2 years, he has gone above & beyond the call of duty as an inspirational leader. This year’s Mr. ACA is Trent Tanner.

Miss ACA for 2015 is a young woman who is always smiling. She is ready and willing to go the extra mile to help or encourage others. She is a marvelous example to her fellow students of citizenship, kindness and integrity. She displays her love for ACA through her athletic talent on the golf course as she maneuvers down the fairways and across the greens as well as in her everyday life as she walks the hallways of our school.

ACA Announces New Head of School

Alabama Christian Academy (ACA), a SACS accredited K-12 Christian school, has named Dr. Misty Overman as its new Head of School. Dr. Overman, who had been Vice President of Learning Initiatives at Greater Atlanta Christian School (Norcross, GA), will join the ACA family on June 1, 2015.

“Dr. Overman has an extraordinary background in education developed over more than 25 years working in a variety of academic, administrative, consulting and assessment positions” explains Bobby Rives, Chairman for the Alabama Christian Academy Board of Directors. “She brings a wealth of working knowledge of education’s best practices, learning initiatives and technology integration, but more importantly, she brings a vision and passion for glorifying God in everything done at ACA and developing tomorrow’s leaders to do the same. We are blessed and honored that she is joining the ACA family.”

Before joining ACA, Dr. Overman, taught high school mathematics, led 6-8 grades as Junior High principal, and oversaw teacher professional development K-12 at Greater Atlanta Christian School. In her senior leadership role at GACS as Vice President of Learning Initiatives, she worked on academic and facility strategic planning, advancement and fundraising, and learning initiatives such as K-12 Academic Support. Dr. Overman serves as the Accreditation Director of the National Christian School Association in full partnership with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS – AdvancEd). Her work in technology integration has also allowed her to present leadership and integration strategy sessions for Apple, Inc. in Cupertino, CA and other parts of the United States.

Rives continues “Our search process was very organic.  It was designed to listen and respond to the collective wisdom of the ACA family, including students, faculty, parents, alumni and other stakeholders numerous through surveys, town hall type meetings and narrow focus group discussions. The profile for ACA’s next Head of School grew out of the insight shared through those surveys and meetings, and this profile was used to identify and assess potential candidates from around the country. Dr. Overman was the clear choice and has all the qualities desired for our next Head of School, with her approachable disposition, ability to cast a vision, love for learning, expectation of excellence and faith-based approach to education and administration.

Dr. Overman has an Ed. D and M.A. in Educational Leadership from the University of Georgia as well as a B.S. in Mathematics Education. She and her husband Jerry have three grown children.

Eleven ACA Students Participate in ALMUN

Eleven Alabama Christian Academy students recently participated in the Alabama Model United Nations Conference on the campus of the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. As a part of the conference, students were in committees that debated and discussed current events and politics, as well as networked with other high school students from across the Southeast. Committees that students participated in included the Justice League Crisis, the Kennedy Crisis, Social Humanitarian and Cultural Committee, Special Political, and Disarmament and International Security. During these times of debate and discussion students tackled problems such as gender equality in education, establishing a nuclear free zone in the Middle East, Korean unification, events that Kennedy’s cabinet faced and Justice League problems. Of the eleven students that attended the conference, Robby Bruce, Keely Nguyen, Aly Nguyen, Autumn Anderson, and Kat Rogers all received Verbal Commendations for their work. Delegates David Swayne and Will Shoemaker each received the Best Delegate award in their committee rooms.
Alabama Christian Academy participates in the Model United Nations programs and various conferences across the Southeast annually to educate students about political processes and current events and to encourage students to be active participants in their communities.
