Community Partnerships

  • ACPS strives to cultivate relationships and maintain partnerships with public and private agencies to encourage a sense of community ownership of our schools, assist the development of the academic, social, physical and emotional needs of our students and empower parents to be supportive and informed advocates for their children.

    A quality education is one of the most important factors in determining an individual's chance at success in life. ACPS supports the building of broad-based partnerships to support the principle of equal educational opportunities for all. Through partnerships, ACPS can inspire civic engagement in students, encourage lifelong learners, and ensure that every student succeeds.


    There are several ways to partner with ACPS and we invite you to find the right path for your organization, business, or individual partnership goals.  See below to learn more.
