Carson Horn’s favorite thing about attending Alabama Christian Academy are the teachers and friends that he’s met there and the family-like atmosphere. At ACA, Carson is involved in many extracurriculars, such as Mu Alpha Theta, National Honor Society, ACA Football, ACA Baseball, Spanish National Honor Society, and serves as an Eagle Ambassador. Something most people don’t know about him is that he has a sports podcast where he talks about SEC football and basketball.
