Annapolis is proud to welcome the newest member of the team, Mrs. Joanne Bielecki, who has been hired to oversee Annapolis’ 7th – 12th Grade guidance programs. JoAnne was born and raised in New Britain, CT and attended the University of Connecticut. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Hospital and obtained her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Louisiana State University in 2004. Since then, JoAnne has worked as a caseworker for ten years and as a school psychologist for an additional two.
Corpus Christi, Texas, is not Aiea, Hawaii. It’s a fact not lost on those of us who live here, and it was certainly not lost on thirteen year old Melissa Wilmot when her family received orders from Honolulu to her parents’ native Texas. A new climate, a new school, and a new (school) requirement for closed-toed shoes were not welcome adjustments to Melissa’s eighth grade year. Five years later, graduating as valedictorian of ACA’s Class of 2015, Melissa has clearly navigated those changes successfully. Through volleyball, basketball, track, painting, drawing, and writing, Melissa has contributed her time, her talents, and her humor to the ACA community.

The only thing that truly matters is your child’s individual rate and pattern of development.
Our 1 year old is all over the place, and for the most part we welcome this new mobile intensity.
Some parents love the newborn stage and dread the infamous toddler, but let us sleep through the night and we’re game for most anything he gets into. This morning, this thought, brought me to my favorite coffee mug.
I just heard from the other room my 3 year old son tell my wife, “I’ll protect him!” This is a pretty common phrase around here and he’s an awesome little boy, but I don’t want you to believe for a moment that he’s an exception to the rule (you know the rule: toddlers are insane and unruly little monsters).
A new year brings many important decisions, but few more important than where your child will go to school. January and February are particularly important months as parents and students evaluate the competitive advantages of schools in the area and make decisions that will impact their family for years to come. With this in mind, I would like to offer you the top 10 reasons why you and your family should RSVP to attend an Annapolis Christian Academy Open House event. Continue reading
