Anna Lenhardt joined the ACS community in 1982, having spent the previous 8 years in Westchester as a Middle School Language Arts and Social Studies teacher, and one of the developers of the district’s gifted program for language arts. During her 19 years as a full-time teacher at ACS, she taught Fifth and Sixth Group Language Arts and Social Studies, established the Chess Club, and assumed sponsorship of the Student Council, expanding it to include students in Groups 1 – 8. Over time, she assumed a number of administrative responsibilities, including coordination of Middle School life and chairing several ISACS Accreditation self-studies. In the fall of 2001, she became a full-time administrator, first as Academic Dean, and finally Middle School Head in the fall of 2013. Upon retiring from her full-time position in the summer of 2020, she became the Director of Secondary School Placement. While enjoying her administrative responsibilities, she maintains close contact with students by continuing with the Student Council and serving on the ACS Alumni Council.

Mrs. Lenhardt is a member of a number of educational organizations, including NAGC, AMLE (Association for Middle Level Education), and The Enrollment Management Association, as well as IAJHSC (Illinois Association of Junior High Student Councils). She especially enjoys contact with ACS alums and makes it a point to connect with them whenever possible.

Outside of ACS, Anna enjoys reading, gardening, and singing with her church choir. She spends time each summer enjoying the north woods of Wisconsin and cheering for the Cubs.
