Giving

We understand that this is a challenging period for our school, our community, and our nation.

Uncertainty is all around us, and at times like this, we look for some kind of stability. We search for examples of kindness, and we seek out the best in the human spirit. AC’s investment in technology, faculty development, and student training in virtual learning has enabled our School to seamlessly move forward with a full schedule of daily online classes. When all of this is over, our students and their families will continue to count on Allendale Columbia School, just as they are counting on us now. With your support, they will have that assurance.

 Please consider making a gift today, for all of the bright tomorrows that lie ahead.

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.
