Important Schedule Changes

Dear ACMS Students and Families,

With the rise in COVID numbers and the impact that rise is having on area hospitals, ACMS has made the decision to pause in-person lessons at the school, effective Monday January 11th through at least Sunday January 31st. All lessons will need to be held on Zoom for the time being. We apologize for this shift but we feel strongly that this is the best way to keep faculty, staff, students and our community safe. Our wonderful staff is available to answer any questions you might have. You can reach us by phone (512.474.2331) or (512.920.2267) and email (

Thank you all for your continued flexibility and creativity. Please stay safe.
