Accelerated Reading begins in 1st grade at ACA and is continued until 12th grade for most students. Each grade is required to earn a different amount of points. AR points do not start "rolling over" into the following term until 3rd grade, however, AR points do NOT roll over into the next school year for any grade. Please see each grade level's information below. You may contact your child's reading teacher if your child is in elementary school, or all parents may contact Mrs. Sprayberry for any AR or Library related questions.
