Livestream Chapel

Every morning, the Academy of the New Church Secondary Schools join together first thing for an inspirational message in the chapel. The ministers in our Religion Department, along with guest ministers, provide a short service based on teachings from the Word. We hope these services can provide food for reflection throughout the day, as well as fodder for class discussion.

You are welcome to join us for the current, live-streamed chapel, or to view past chapels, by clicking on the YouTube link below. They are typically about 10-12 minutes in length

ANC Spanish Exchange

ANC participated in the fourth “intercambio” with La Purísima school in Valencia, Spain this past month. To kick off the exchange, ANC students traveled to Spain during spring break (March 1-11) to stay with their host family and attend school for two days. Twice the Spanish hosts took ANC students on excursions: once to the Roman ruins in Sagunto and later on a walking tour of historic Valencia. ANC students also went with a guide to the “Ciudad de las artes y ciencias”--a science and art center including the largest aquarium in Europe. After a fun-filled week with with their hosts, the ANC group traveled to Barcelona to spend the weekend visiting historic sights there, including La Sagrada Familia, Parque Güell and Las Ramblas, ending the weekend with a flamenco dinner show.

March 22-April 1 the Spanish students were reunited with their ANC hosts, attending classes on Tuesday and Thursday. They noticed differences in our two educational systems such as our students changing classrooms for each class whereas in Spain the students stay in one classroom and change teachers! On Monday they explored historic Philadelphia with their American hosts, and Wednesday the Spanish students had their own excursion into the city, including a visit of the Franklin Institute. A highlight of their time here was the Jr/Sr dance held at Cairnwood Mansion. Spanish high schools to not host dances so it was an unforgettable experience for them!

Many tears were shed as the Spanish students boarded the bus Monday morning to head to NYC for two days of sightseeing before flying back to Spain. They thoroughly enjoyed their time at ANC and hope to return soon!
