Coming Soon

Michael Caban, Principal


Michael Cabán began working at ACA in the fall of 2008 as the principal.  He is married to Simoné Cabán and has a son at home.  A couple of reasons he enjoys working at ACA is the freedom to express his faith in Christ to the students and families, and the privilege of helping meet students’ academic needs.

Simone Caban,  Church & School Secretary


Simone and her husband Michael have been at Amherst Christian Academy since August 2008.  They accepted the role of Principal and Church & School Secretary after receiving peace and confirmation through prayer.  They count it a joy and a privilege to serve the teachers, students and families.  Over the years they have formed many life long relationships with their families and community.

Sarah Comfort, Music, Events Coordinator & Social Studies Teacher

Sarah Comfort has been the Girl's Volleyball coach since the fall of 2012, and the physical education teacher since the fall of 2014.  She also recently started working with ACA's music classes.  Ms. Comfort appreciates the opportunity to teach in a school that is focused on encouraging students to glorify God in every aspect of their lives.  Whether they are singing in a choir or spiking a volleyball, students are taught to keep Christ in the center of their thoughts.

Kelly Besant, 8-12 Grade Teacher & Daycare Director


Kelly Besant started with ACA as the high school teacher in the fall of 2014.  She is married to Allen Besant and has twin boys.  Two of her favorite aspects of working at ACA include the ability she has to work with her students one-on-one each day and the opportunity to minister to the students’ spiritual needs through prayer and encouragement.  The curriculum also provides opportunities to instill Godly values into their lives and nurture their relationship with Christ.
