Always ACDS Logo

Inspired by the hard work and dedication of past ACDS families, teachers, and students, we are continuing our journey with fervor. Always ACDS recognizes our School’s past, present, and future, and sets a course for ensuring that ACDS continues to be the best educational home for generations of ACDS students to come.

Through Always ACDS, we seek $3,000,000 in philanthropic support to build on our current momentum and set ACDS on an even stronger and more sustainable course. Funds raised by the campaign will complete our strategic vision by fulfilling two essential priorities for ACDS: endowment ($2 million) and campus improvements ($1 million).

As you will hear in the video and read in the letters from our Alumni, ACDS is the place where our students’ lives are shaped and and where they learn about their limitless potential and wonder, “what might be possible?”

We invite you to explore this site to learn about the campaign and how you can have an impact on the lives of our students. Read through our Case for Support and discover how we hope to further the mission of our School.

The goals and aspirations of this effort will become a reality only through the generous support of this community, which time and again has shown an unwavering commitment to ACDS. We are forever grateful to our donors, volunteers, and staff that have dedicated themselves to the Always ACDS Campaign.
