Each year we participate in ACSI sponsored activity programs that seek to encourage and inspire students toward a standard of excellence in leadership, communication, and performance by enhancing member Christian schools’ academic and fine arts programs. It provides opportunity for students to practically apply and develop skills necessary for confident Christian leadership. Each activity is planned to impact students’ educational and spiritual growth, encouraging them to be a testimony to the gospel . Events also seek to provide opportunity for Christian fellowship and positive interaction between students and teachers of participating schools.
Schools begin their participation at the school level, which impacts the highest number of students. As students progress to the district and regional levels, they are challenged by interaction with students of similar interests and abilities. Parents, friends, and the general public benefit from the ministry of these students in music, speech, and academic programs.
The awards program for ACSI Student Activities affirms each participant’s individual effort while recognizing those whose skill and ability provide an inspiration and a challenge to excellence for all who participate.
