For over 30 years, Atlantic Shores Christian School has been recognized in the Hampton Roads area for perfecting the unique combination of academic excellence and Christian education. Beginning at the preschool level, our commitment is to educate the whole student. We seek to provide a nurturing, balanced, well-rounded educational experience that will help young men and women achieve everything that God has in store for them.
With two campuses, housing grades K3 through 12th, and more than 750 students enrolled at the school, we pride ourselves on our high academic and spiritual standards. Our impressive selection of choices, not only in the academic curriculum, but also in athletics, fine arts, student activities, spiritual development and community service, provides a unique opportunity in encouraging our students to find their perfect balance.
As we daily impact our students’ lives spiritually, we also expect a tradition of academic excellence to be fundamental to our mission. Our commitment to you, our Shores families, is spiritually strong individuals who continue to shatter academic records previously achieved by the classes before them.
In 2014, the Together AS One campaign was launched. The goal was to combine our two campuses into one complex on the current Chesapeake campus. Our capital campaign Transforming Today. Impacting Tomorrow. was born from this vision. Already, advanced interactive teaching technology, new computers and state-of-the-art science labs have been created from the first phase of the Transforming Today. Impacting Tomorrow. campaign. In order to complete the campaign, a new 44,000 square foot Elementary facility must be built.
The project is large, but we are thrilled to take this step in the long-term vision for life-changing impact on the lives of children in our families, our churches and our community.
Transforming Today. Impacting Tomorrow.
In the development of our “Together AS One” school vision, the board of directors and administration defined the long range plans for Atlantic Shores Christian School. The vision included the purchase of additional land and the construction of new facilities to provide for enrollment growth and to advance the academic and extra-curricular offerings of the school.
Our goal is to be the best Christian school in Hampton Roads. Completion of the “Together AS One” vision plan will result in a new campus, designed and equipped to provide opportunities for students to excel in all areas of development. We are building a legacy of excellence while impacting the world for Christ.
The crowning achievement of the “Together AS One” plan will be the completion of a brand new 44,000 square foot Elementary educational building placed on our recently acquired property in Chesapeake, adjacent to our Secondary Campus.
This new building will include 28 classrooms, multiple specialty classrooms, a library, state-of-the-art technology, several fine arts areas, a playground, a full kitchen and a large multipurpose space. This project is estimated to cost approximately $8 million dollars. The board of directors have voted on the creation of a $2 million dollar capital campaign to fund this exciting project.
While we are asking for your help financially, we cannot overstate the importance of you joining with us in prayer. We know that this is a large project and that it won’t be possible without the Lord’s favor being placed on it. We ask that you pray for every portion of this project; from the financing, to the City approval, and great building weather! What a joy it will be when we are all on one campus for the start of the 2018-2019 school year!
“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.” ~Psalm 127:1
We truly believe there is no greater mission than to partner with the home and the church in order to lead all students into higher levels of excellence spiritually, academically, physically and emotionally so that they can impact their world for Christ. The Lord is calling us to make an even greater educational and spiritual difference in our students, and an even broader impact in the Hampton Roads community. Please join us by transforming today and thereby impacting tomorrow.
