Giving

"The future depends on what we do in the present." Mahatma Gandhi

Making a gift to Allendale Columbia School has never been more important or more impactful. Over the last few months, we have heard from many of our AC community members who have shared why the School is so special to them. They've cited the caring faculty, innovative educational experiences, diverse environment, and bonds of friendship. Now AC needs YOU to give back to the place and to the people who gave you, your children, or your grandchildren so much.

What is Progressive Education?

At AC, progressive education is not a trendy catch phrase; it's the centerpiece of all that we do. A progressive education is one that moves with the times; one that is relevant and meaningful. Our teachers don't just deliver information to students and require memorization of facts. Students at AC actively engage and drive learning through thoughtful questions, discovery, collaboration, and creativity. We invite you to learn more about why our methods, practices, and actions are worth your support.
