Children in Child Development Center
AACC has decided to permanently close its Child Development Center.

After reviewing and weighing many options, we determined that the program is not a sustainable model and made the tough but responsible choice to close the center. We regret the inconvenience this may cause and will miss the sight of young children on campus. Please know we are doing everything we can to meet our mission by continuing to provide the highest quality education to you and our community.

We know this decision comes at a difficult time for all of us and will impact some students and employees negatively. Please review the list of resources below to assist in this transition. You may direct additional questions to
