The ACS Heritage
The Anglo-Chinese School (ACS) has shaped the lives of hundreds of thousands of students since its founding in 1886. Today, it has grown to a family of six fine schools with a total enrolment of more than 10,000, blessed with an enviable reputation for producing many of the nation’s outstanding leaders, entrepreneurs and sportsmen.
The five other ACS institutions are: ACS (Junior), ACS (Primary), ACS (
The ACS brand of education is based on the vision of our founder, Bishop William F. Oldham, to develop well-rounded students of strong moral character to excel academically, physically, socially and spirituality. The journey our students take from primary school to junior college is one of discovery, personal development, interaction and the pursuit for excellence. At every stage, we prepare them for the many challenges that they will face when they step into society and the real world. It is a memorable journey that fosters camaraderie, encourages a remarkable sense of belonging amongst students, teachers, parents and alumni, and also one that cultivates the inimitable ACS spirit that has made ACS unique amongst schools.
ACS takes great pride in nurturing the leaders of tomorrow, and setting benchmarks for others to follow. As it continues to move forward in tandem with the times to meet the needs of the ever changing modern world. One thing in its brand of education remains unchanged, and that is the sound Christian values and principal that is responsible for the matchless ACS spirit of excellence, service and loyalty.
