A BEAUTIFUL MISSION
Annapolis was founded on the conviction that our highest purpose in life is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. This conviction informs our whole approach to education as we seek to love God with all our hearts and minds and serve others with the gifts he has given us.
More than just academics, Annapolis exists to impact the lives of students, families, and our community. We accomplish this by providing a safe and nurturing educational community committed to discipleship, education, and service.
Daring To Be Wise
The Classical Christian tradition teaches that wisdom is supreme and that the source and origin of a wise and flourishing life begins with the fear of the Lord (Prov. 9:10). This conviction drives our passion for learning within the context of a biblical world and life view.
Annapolis celebrates the diversity of belief and practice found within the larger Christian community in Corpus Christi and is committed to preserving the unity of all Christians in the bond of peace. As an interdenominational and ecumenical Christian community, our motto is “In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity.”
AN URGENT NEED
Since purchasing its permanent 15-acre campus in 2010, Annapolis’ enrollment has grown by over 25%. At this rate of growth, Annapolis Christian Academy’s classroom, athletic, and playground facilities are inadequate and will limit future growth unless addressed.
The lack of a computer lab, additional classroom space, research library, and faculty and administrative offices hinder Annapolis’ ability to accomplish its mission to provide a high-quality, 21st-century college preparatory high school experience.
With over 200 Grammar School students currently sharing use of an aging playground originally designed to accommodate only 20 students, it is imperative that Annapolis expand its playground facilities to provide adequate time and space for the physical development of its student population.
A STATE-OF-THE-ART HIGH SCHOOL
The proposed 18,000 square foot School of Rhetoric classroom building is named after Annapolis’ founding headmaster, Jack L. Carter, and will be the final, crowning destination for students entering grades 9 – 12. The design matches the beauty of the original neo-gothic campus architecture but reflects modern 21st-century learning priorities – collaborative learning spaces, integrated technology, observational science labs, research library, and faculty and administrative office and work space.
THE SPORTS & RECREATION CENTER
The proposed 30,000 square foot Warrior Sports & Recreation Center will accommodate over 100 students at a time and include two multipurpose sport courts for basketball, volleyball, tennis, foursquare, and hopscotch, a regulation sized U10 artificial turf soccer field, a fully equipped playground space with gaga ball pit, and an 800 square foot covered pavilion for outdoor classes, concerts, and more.
$10 MILLION DOLLAR GOAL
A local foundation has graciously offered to finance the entire cost of the capital improvements with no interest and no payments for 3 years. During this “grace period,” the ACA board of trustees will be seeking to raise money through a capital campaign to pay down as much of the principal as possible.
Over the course of the next three years, the ACA board of trustees is seeking to raise a minimum of $10,000,000 in restricted capital gifts and pledges.
