Our Own Academy

ANC's Homecoming has come and gone for 2018. Thank you to all who participated and all who contributed and continue to contribute in so many ways. It is a wonderful weekend in which to reminisce and to see the continuation of the ANC Experience. Whether or not you were able to attend, enjoy this short video that encapsulates the many events, both exciting and reinvigorating, overdubbed with portions of the Reverend Ray Silverman's address at the Bryn Athyn Cathedral Charter Day service. Thanks for being a part of "Our Own Academy!"

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 is currently planning their forth exchange with La Purísima school in Valencia, Spain during the 2018-2019 school year. See photos from the 2017 exchange here and here! ANC students and teachers will travel to Valencia over spring break 2019 to live with host families, attend classes and tour Valencia as well as spend a weekend in Barcelona. Our visit to Valencia will coincide with preparations for the region’s biggest festival of the year: Las Fallas. We will get to experience the daily fireworks, numerous parades and gigantic ninots - huge paper-mache statues that commemorate and satirize the past year. In Barcelona, we will visit the Sagrada Familia, Barri Gòtic, walk along Las Ramblas and see a Flamenco show. We will also have a quick stop in Madrid on the way to Valencia!.

The Spanish students will be coming to ANC at the end of March to stay with host families, attend ANC classes and also take day trips to surrounding points of interest.

Since this is an exchange, students who plan to travel to Spain are also expected to host. Students will be matched by the teachers and ANC students will stay with the same Spanish student he or she hosted. If there is an impediment to hosting (such as being a resident student) we can work together to find alternate arrangements for the students.

The trip is open to any ANC student, although some knowledge of Spanish language is necessary to live with a host family for a week. Spanish 1 students have gone on both of the previous exchanges with great success. Click here for itinerary and prices. Thanks to a generous grant, there is financial aid available. Please contact sarah.waelchli@ancss.org for more information or for registration instructions.
