Agape Christian School
Agape is a Greek word, which means unconditional love. John 13:34 says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” God shows us unconditional love every day and we in turn want to show this same kind of love to every person that enters the doors at Agape Christian School. We know that our students enter our doors with many needs (emotional, academic, and/or spiritual) and our desire is to show students that God loves them through our actions and words. We offer a safe and caring environment for each student to grow as a person in all areas of their life.
Agape Christian School (ACS) began its ministry in August 2005. We are a non-denominational Christian school, serving students in both Sarasota and Manatee Counties. Our desire is three-fold; the first is that each student will come to know Jesus as his or her Savior. Secondly, that each student will develop a close and personal relationship with Jesus. Thirdly, that each student is equipped to be successful as life long learners.
The curriculum we have chosen is the Accelerated Christian Education program. This is an individualized program and allows students to work at their ability level and to progress at their rate. We believe in a small student to teacher ratio, which allows for building relationships and assisting students on an individual basis.
ACS is about KIDS and building a better future for our community. We are blessed that you are entrusting to us your most precious gift, your child.
Our vision at ACS is to express the love of Christ in each student’s journey. The journey begins at the student’s ability level. With the combined support of family and staff, a path is defined and refined as the student meets the challenges of their journey/goals in the areas of academics, spirituality, and social growth.
ACS admits students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students of the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarships, and other school administered programs. ACS is maintained for the purpose of education, spiritual instruction, and building of Christian character.
