Thank you for visiting our Abundant Life Christian website! We hope you find the information useful and helpful as you consider Christian education at ALCS for your child.
Abundant Life Christian School was founded in 1978 as a community Christian school with the vision of providing academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment for families in the greater Dane County area. ALCS is one of two campuses which makes up Madison Christian Schools. Abundant Life Christian, our east campus, serves K-12 while our west campus, High Point Christian, serves PS-8. ALCS has grown from its humble beginnings with 30 students to nearly 230 students enrolled today in Kindergarten through 12th grade.
ALCS is conveniently located at 4901 E. Buckeye Road in Madison, WI, just ½ mile east of Highway 51. We share a 28-acre campus with Campus for Kids Learning Center (infant-4K) and City Church. The school began in 1978 with the mission to “partner with parents and churches to train young men and women in the development of Christian character and academic excellence.” Since the school's inception, ALCS has graduated 29 classes representing many students who have gone on to further their education at colleges, mission fields, and the military. Our graduates are building careers and families as they fulfill their God-given purpose in life.
For a family considering a partnership with ALCS, it is important to understand our reliance on the Bible as the inspired Word of God and the foundation for all that we teach. ALCS has a strong academic program which instills the disciplines and skills necessary for each of our students to become successful in life. We are committed to developing the whole person: intellectually, spiritually, socially, and physically.
ALCS offers a balanced approach in its educational philosophy. Advanced academic opportunities include high school advanced placement or AP classes. The exposure to fine arts encourages students to develop their talents, gifts, and abilities in ways that have the potential to influence their community for the rest of their lives. In athletics, ALCS provides opportunities for students competing against area schools as a member of the WIAA in high school and of MAISL in middle school. These three areas of emphasis are rounded out and stabilized by a Christ-focused worldview. It is foundational to our mission that a Christ-focused worldview be integrated into each subject and activity.
Again, thank you for visiting our website . . . why not visit our school! Schedule a tour and see our school for yourself. Come meet our faculty and get a feel for what our ALCS family is like. We'd love to have your family join ours and be part of the growing Christian education community of which we are blessed to belong.
