Airdrie Christian Academy

Airdrie Christian Academy, formerly known as Airdrie Christian School or ACS is a private K-12 school located in Airdrie, Alberta. The school was founded in 1987 by Brian Hazeltine and was one of the largest schools in the Calgary area.[1] In 2019 it renamed as Airdrie Christian Academy.[2] The school has developed a reputation for academic excellence, and has been ranked among the top schools in Alberta.[3] (In 2012 the Fraser Institute ranked the ACS Elementary School in the top 25% of the province at 157 of 665 schools.[4])

BuildingEdit

The school originally occupied the basement of Living Springs Christian Fellowship (then known as Fellowship Bible Chapel), but in 1996 moved into a series of portable buildings behind Faith Community Baptist Church.[1] In March 2012, they broke ground on what would be their first non-rental location.[5]
