Founder Of ACS 
ACS was founded by Sir Bishop Oldham. It was a small school teaching less than 20 children. But thanks to many generous donations of huge sums from Well Known people like Mr Thoburn.Mr Tan Kak Kee and a few others .
It is compulsory for a student in Primary 4 or higher to take at least one co-curricular activity (CCA).
There are numerous CCA's such as Art Club, JMedia Club, Junior Vibez, The Concert Band, The Boys Brigage, The Cadet Scouts and Soccer. These are just some of the numerous CCA's offered by the school.

To you manage to pass round 1 and continue into round 2 but if you fail to succeed.In the next year you will be admitted into the Thoburn class.
Weekly Programs 
There are many programes that go on weekly such as FUN(find your niche) Friday, Talent Tuesday,Record Breaking Thursday.
During Talent Tuesday, the students can do anything to their talent before assembly, in the school shaw auditorum.(conducted by teachers) Showcase Friday brings about innovation in the students, anyone can Busk for money, any way, anyhow.
The programs are not really active now as the school has changed their style of assembly. Showcase Friday happens now rarely happens.
The ACS (Junior) Campus located at 16 Winstedt Road has a total of 49 classrooms. Around of the 15 classrooms are air-conditioned to give better learning conditions. They have two halls, a multi-purpose hall(MPH) and the performing arts hall(PAH). The school also has a field, a fitness corner, a playground, an outdoor tennis court and an indoor sports hall. The campus also has three computer laboratories where the teachers could take the students to as supplement to their lessons. There are two music rooms just outside the main teaching block. A small AVA room is located near the music rooms for prayer meetings or other activities.
Prefectorial Board 
The prefectorial board is elected by the teaching and administrations staff every year and are formally appointed during Prefects Investiture Day. The Prefectorial Board is made up by members of the Council, Primary 5 & 6 prefects as well as Primary 4 junior prefects.
Odyssey Of The Mind 
Odyssey of the Mind is the biggest non-curricular activity that has been going on in the school. Every year since 2003, the school sends numerous teams to compete in 5 different problems at national standard. If they get through, they will compete at a university in the USA for the world champion's title, the top 10 title and the prestigious Ranatra Fusca Creativity award. The world champion's title was clinched in 2007 and 2011 and the Ranatra Fusca award was clinched by the 2003 pioneer team.
All 7 members of the teams have to do the props, skit, vehicle and balsa structure by themselves. This way, the students learn more as they have to think of the solution themselves. All the coaches, parents and teachers abide the Odyssey of the Mind rules of 'no telling, only hinting'.
Occasionally, there is some mentoring from their seniors who visit them frequently. Their seniors mostly come from ACS (Independent). This act of very strong brotherliness was initiated in 2008, between ACS (Ind), ACS (Junior) and ACJC.

ACS(J)is currently standing on 16 Winstedt Road.
