Performing Arts Camp

We are in the second week of ANC’s Performing Arts Camp for 6th, 7th & 8th graders. Campers have been working on their character creation, choreography, vocals and blocking for the upcoming performance of “Madagascar, Jr.”

ANC Performing Arts camp is an annual theatrical experience for middle schoolers culminating in a performance of a musical. This year’s show is “Madagascar, Jr,” and all are invited to the two final performances.

“Madagascar, Jr.” follows the story of Alex the lion, king of the urban jungle and the main attraction at New York's Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends – Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo – have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape – with the help of some prodigious penguins – to explore the world.

Filled with outlandish characters, adventure galore and an upbeat score, Madagascar JR. will leave audiences with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!” This 60 minute show is perfect for kids of all ages! Tickets are $6 and are available online.

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



Speak Your Mind

The doors opened at 6:30 pm for this annual opportunity for ANC students to speak their minds. The program began at 7 with the ANC Choir's rendition of our National Anthem. Enjoy the talks at the link below. Congratulations to the ANC English Department for another fine display of skills they are learning in class.
