Since it is strongly tied to Christianity and the Bible, students who apply to the school should have a strong interest in these areas of study. To apply, interested students will first need to take the SAT or ACT exam. After receiving scores back, they will need to be submitted to ABC, along with an online (or paper) application. Additional materials include three references (two from non-family members, and one from a pastor) and high school transcripts. As part of the application, students will need to write a short essay. While campus visits are not required, they are always encouraged. If you have any questions about the school or the application process, feel free to contact the admissions office. And, be sure to check the school's website regularly for updated information, requirements, and deadlines.
