Bearcat Kitchen
A concept created by Elizabeth Swartz and Lucas Shouse to introduce our virtual students to the world of cooking.  Our goal is simple; to provide students the opportunity to learn to  prepare hearty & healthy meals for themselves and their families.  Our first session was open to juniors and seniors in the virtual program. We have 11 students in our first session and hope to have 20 in the next.  We include both healthy and hearty recipes.  Several ACHS staff members shared their family favorites with us!
3.5 Academic Awards Recognition for 2019-2020 Will Be Thursday, November 11
Honorees have been posted in the East and West Wing lobbies since December and are included in the attachment.  Check with the Guidance office if you have questions.  We apologize that parents/guardians cannot participate this year, but we look forward to celebrating with seniors during 1st period, juniors during 2nd period, and sophomores during 3rd period.

Virtual and hybrid students are encouraged to participate that day as well with their classmates.

Thank you,
ACHS  Administration

2021 Prom and Graduation
Prom and Graduation
The 2021 ACHS prom is currently scheduled for May 22, 2021. While the intention is to offer a prom experience like in years past, we do not know what restrictions may be in place at that time. Our hope is that by the middle to end of February we are able to make more finalized decisions and begin ticket sales. Please be patient as we work to offer this event for the students and adhere to whatever future regulations may be in place.
The 2021 ACHS graduation ceremony is scheduled to be held at Alltech Arena on Friday, May 28th at 6:30 p.m.  Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, Alltech (as of Jan. 19, 2021) has a 15% seating capacity requirement (yellow zone).  We will continually keep everyone up to date as more information becomes available from the Kentucky Horse Park event planners.  In the event that restrictions are still in place closer to graduation, the district and ACHS will work to have an alternative venue for the ceremony.  We appreciate your patience as we move forward with planning preparation to honor our graduates.
