Our special events represent the convergence of our community behind a shared purpose: building community while raising essential funds that directly support ACS's unique instructional programs and benefit our talented teachers.


Auction for ACS | April 3-9, 2017

Bid high, and bid often!

We are pleased to announce that from April 3 - 9, 2017, the Auction for ACS will be exclusively online and open to all parents, alumni, and friends of ACS. The proceeds from this online event directly support the goal of closing the financial gap between what families pay in tuition and the actual cost of education each ACS student. That means your auction purchases support every student, every teacher, every day! The Auction for ACS will feature a variety of items ranging from one-of-a-kind experiences with ACS faculty and administration, both child- and adult-oriented buy-in parties, date nights, family outings, vacations, unique experiences and more.

THE MIXER at The GlassHouseThe Mixer | April 8, 2017

A Party to Benefit ACS

Replacing the former Dinner Auction, The Mixer will be a modern cocktail party featuring live music from The Peelers, a Makerspace lounge, casino, cocktails and small plate stations in San Jose's new sleek event space called The GlassHouse. The Mixer will be a lively party that brings together parents, teachers, alumni, and friends of the school for a special evening to celebrate and support ACS students and teachers. Tickets will be sold online for $85 each. During the party, guests will enjoy mixing it up with the ACS community, therefore no seating assignments will be necessary.

Parents, alumni, and businesses can support The Mixer by attending, becoming a sponsor of the event, bidding on live auction items or by raising their paddle to support a specific need at ACS.

For more information about Auction for ACS or The Mixer, or to learn about ways to get involved as an event sponsor, item donor, or volunteer, please contact Jennifer Hull in the Development Office.
