  • As many of our member schools are dealing with the aftermath of Hurriane Florence, we want you to know that your ACSI Southeast office staff are praying for you and your schools, and we stand ready to assist in any way we can in the coming days.

    Due to the threat of severe weather, and evacuations ordered by the Governor of Virginia, the District Meeting at Greenbrier Christian Academy is rescheduled for Tuesday, November 6.  The District Meeting at Friendship Christian School is rescheduled for Tuesday, November 13 at FCS. 

    Please contact us as soon as you are able with any damage reports, prayer requests, or needs. This will allow us to marshal resources that come in, and place your information on our website so other member schools can help.  

    In the meantime, know that we are lifting you up continuously before the Lord, asking for His protection, provision, and peace during this time of uncertainty (Isaiah 43:1-3).
  • I thoroughly enjoyed seeing and talking with many of you at the District Meeting's, and very much appreciated your participation and encouraging comments about the 'School Safety' content and format. Just in case you weren't able to make it to one, or were interested in digital versions of the hand-outs and articles, everything can be easily accessed in Community under 2018 District Meetings!
