In 2012 we took a bold step of faith and began to make plans to start a Christian school.  Little did we know we would become the first rural ACE school in sub saharan Africa.  We started with 18 students and have now progressed from a pre-school to the addition of first grade.  

Our vision and goal is to provide a quality Christian education for those in deep poverty in rural Uganda.  We plan to finance our school initially through financial assistance from people who share our vision.
