FAQ

  • When was Alexandria Classical Christian Academy Founded?
    ACCA was founded in the summer of 2023 by Ms. Katherine Kramer due to a growing need for additional access to Classical Christian Schools in Alexandria, VA. The 2023-2024 school year will feature a more ‘cottage school’ approach with roughly 40 students, while ACCA staff prepares for a full enrollment (and high demand) in 2024-2025.
  • How many grades do you have?
    For the 2023- 2024 academic year, ACCA serves Lower School students (from Kindergarten through 4th grade). In subsequent years, we will grow one grade level per academic year. Our vision is to eventually offer a Kindergarten-12th grade academy in Alexandria.
  • What is the class size at ACCA?
    Due to our small “cottage school” approach for 2023-2024, our class sizes will range from about 6 – 10 children per class. In future years, we are committed to maintaining class sizes of 15 children or less.
  • Is ACCA affiliated with a particular church or denomination?
    No, ACCA is an independent and private Christian school without institutional ties to a specific church or denomination. We do subscribe to the historical creeds of faith (the Apostles Creed) and are strongly rooted in Christian teachings and the Gospel. We follow the church year with our students and encourage reverence in worship. We are housed at First Baptist Church of Alexandria and deeply grateful for their generosity in sharing their beautiful campus with us.
  • What is a Classical Christian Education?
    Classical Christian education is a long tradition of education that emphasizes the pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty while cultivating a desire for wisdom and virtue within the student. This is accomplished by the reading of the great books of history and literature, the study of mathematics and creation, and the encouragement and guidance of the teachers.
