Alabama Christian Education Association
ACEA was organized in 1975 and has served an estimated 160,000 students, and has, in some way, touched every Christian school in the state. Presently, ACEA is one of the largest state Christian school organizations in the country. Our future looks bright as we continue to grow, work, and serve together.
Our primary purpose for existing is the Christian school student. Our young people are very important to us. By working together, we can more ably and efficiently meet the spiritual, academic, and athletic needs of our young people. ACEA makes it possible for the needs of both the large and small school to be met.
Protecting our interest in the Alabama State Legislature and working with member church and Christian schools in legal areas is another important responsibility of ACEA that can only be accomplished collectively. The Executive Director represents and speaks for scores of churches and Christian schools, and thousands of parents and students. Legislation protecting church schools from offensive state regulations is now law because of ACEA. Unwanted, unwise, and harmful legislation has been stopped or defeated because of ACEA’s presence in Montgomery. Keeping church childcare programs operating without submitting the church to state licensure will always be a priority.
More than ever before, the necessity of working together to meet the needs of our young people must be a number one priority. ACEA stands ready to provide the needed leadership to meet this important need.
