Campus Life

Wield the Shield

The Wield the Shield Program benefits our middle school and high school students and was designed with a focus on the Armor of God in Ephesians 6:10-18. We want our students to graduate with full knowledge of several opportunities and how they can influence the world as leaders and Christians.

ACS invites participation from professionals who have established businesses, work in a certain field of service, or have chosen a career path that interests the students. During the first stage of Wield the Shield, the guests visit our campus, provide insight on their careers, what education paths they followed, what challenges they have faced, and their accomplishments. Students also learn from the guest speakers how their relationship with Christ has affected their lives and their careers. The second stage involves the students visiting the professionals’ job sites and environments to see how their services are provided or how their products are made. The third stage concludes the series with students presenting what they learned to their class and teachers.

ABCs of the Gospel

Students begin to memorize the ABCs of the Gospel beginning in our Bridge-K program.  Once they master A-Z and can recite them in front of their teacher they are awarded a certificate of achievement and a new Bible.

Train Whistle Moments

One of our loving partners, Alpine Memorial Funeral Home, sponsors our Train Whistle Moments that broadcast on KVLF and KALP every weekday morning and afternoon.  We also post our Train Whistle Moments on our Facebook page where our fans can follow and share the Scripture messages and inspirational quotes recorded by our students.

ACS Outreach

Throughout the year, Alpine Christian School helps our surrounding communities with outreach projects.  We deliver cookies to our first responders and law enforcement on Valentine's Day, visit local animal shelters on National Puppy Day to love on both cats and dogs, deliver care packages to the homeless in nearby cities, prepare and serve dinner at the local Thanksgiving Community Dinner, prepare Thanksgiving baskets for the Family Crisis Center, and tour Alpine to sing Christmas carols to families who have lost a loved one during the year.  We have delivered supplies to Houston and Sonora after flooding and partnered with many local churches in their outreach and mission efforts.  Mark 16:15 says "go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation" so ACS encourages discipleship in our students through every outreach project and every community event.  We focus on glorifying God in everything that we do.
