Special Events

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


Online Auction | March 27-31, 2019

Bid high, and bid often!

We are pleased to announce that from March 27-31, 2019, we will host an online auction open to all parents, alumni, and friends of ACDS. 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 ACDS student. That means your auction purchases support every student, every teacher, every day! The online auction will feature a variety of items ranging from one-of-a-kind experiences with ACDS faculty and administration, both child- and adult-oriented buy-in parties, date nights, family outings, vacations, unique experiences and more.


Benefit Dinner Party | March 30, 2019

In 2019, ACDS will host a benefit dinner party featuring a sit-down dinner, live auction and music from The Peelers at San Jose's elegant Westin St. Claire Hotel. The event will be a lively party that brings together parents, teachers, alumni, and friends of the school for a special evening to celebrate and support ACDS students and teachers. Tickets will be sold online for $125 each.

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