I can proudly say that my youngest child is a 2012 graduate of AHCCS.(He participated in the graduation ceremony at Ligonier's Foxley Farm.)

I loved the fact that his teachers were in constant contact with both of us---and because of a class he took while a student at AHCCS he developed an interest in criminal justice. No similar class is offered at the local brick and mortar. I would recommend AHCCS to any parent considering educational options for their child.
