Dear ACCA Families,
Adams County Christian Academy (ACCA) has made the decision that they will begin the 2020 – 2021 school year on August 26, 2020. We will begin at our planned time with teachers and students IN THE CLASSROOMS unless it is illegal to do so. We will modify and adjust our daily routines, procedures, and protocols to promote student and staff health and wellness.
Guidelines from our healthcare community and the CDC will serve as the foundation for all decisions. In order to closely align with the most up-to-date precautions, ACCA will be providing details about specific steps as we get closer to August 26th. We want to be clear that we will take the wise and prudent measures to ensure the health and safety of all of our students and employees.
Dear ACCA Families,
Adams County Christian Academy has been closely monitoring the developing concerns with the Coronavirus. The health and welfare of our students and faculty is top priority of our School Board and Administration. Mrs. Fertich has been receiving daily updates and communication from the local, state and federal agencies as they are keeping schools informed. As this situation is evolving rapidly, we are including links below to the CDC and PA Dept. of Health webpage for advice and local guidance during this time.
As of March 16, 2020 ACCA has moved online in response to Governor Wolf's mandate to close schools indefinitely. This means ACCA will continue online teaching until further notice, possibly until the end of the school year. We want to assure you that our teachers will continue to present meaningful lessons and work for your children to keep them on course to finish their grade levels for the year.
They will continue to pray with your children and interact with them faithfully. As a commitment to you and our students, we will also move forward with the Terra Nova Achievement testing for grades K-12. You enrolled in ACCA to receive a high quality Christian education, and we are committed to preparing your students for next year and to prevent learning gaps. The results of the Terra Nova tests will give us information about the progress made this year and help us prepare our instruction for next year. Once we are able to conduct the tests at school, dates for testing will be determined.
Thank you again for your trust and confidence in Adams County Christian Academy. With God's help and your support, we will complete another successful year at ACCA!
