Immediate Athletic Openings - We have openings for an athletic secretary as well as Athletic Director that need to be filled as soon as possible. Applewood is blessed to have such a great sports program with outstanding athletes and coaching staff. Many serving in our athletic department are home school parents or ACS families that are already serving in many other areas at our school. We are asking that ALL of our families be in prayer to see if this is an area that God would call YOU to serve. You do not need to have a child involved in our athletic program to fill these positions. If you would like additional information about either of these positions, please contact the office.
