Ann Arbor Christian School is an independent, interdenominational, and private Christian school not associated with a church or denomination. While our high school campus is located at Grace Ann Arbor North Church (formerly Huron Hills Church), we are not a school of that church and are completely autonomous from them. However, we are very grateful for the partnership that we have with the church and for their hospitality in hosting our high school.
As a school, about 45 churches are represented within our school community. We appreciate the diversity of churches represented in our school and the richness it provides to our community.
Although families in the school are members of churches that are unified on the essentials of the Christian faith (as summarized by the Apostles’ Creed or Nicean Creed), they may hold differing views on certain non-essential aspects of faith and practice, such as how baptism should be performed, how communion is celebrated, and the role of women in church leadership. Yet, our common mission of helping children grow as disciples of Jesus Christ empowers us to respond to these challenges with Christian love and maturity.
Rather than teach the non-core doctrine of any one particular denomination, we focus on developing the Christian character of the students, their knowledge of the Scriptures, their relationship with their Lord and Savior, and their understanding of what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ. We are united in the foundational beliefs that make us all Christians.
At the same time, with a commitment to truth and love working together, we also hold steadfast to traditional and biblical views on critical social issues in our world today. We believe in God’s call to love all and to do so without compromising convictions.
