New Christian high school begins classes Aug. 21

July 9. The first day of classes at Ambassador Christian School, Lake Norman’s newest high school, will be Aug. 21, with 9th through 11th grade students in an 80,000 square foot facility in Huntersville.

Ambassador’s founders, Melissa Gibbs and Nicole Bryan, have been laying the foundation of the school for three years. ACS has received Foundational Accreditation by the Association of Christian Schools International.

The former mega-church facility has a 2,100-seat performance hall, a maple hardwood gymnasium and classroom spaces.


Ambassador’s mission is to provide an opportunity for students to thrive in an environment where “unique giftedness is celebrated, individual strengths are developed, virtue is valued, and faith is authentically explored.”

Once fully built out the school will accommodate over 1,000 students.
