Thank you for your interest in American Academy of Strategic Education.
American Academy creates a perfect setting by paired the perfect academic environment with the perfect social environment to create the perfect educational setting:
How it works:
From the parent’s perspective – we have made this really easy for parents. Sign them up and drop them off! Most homeschooling families’ homeschool for different reasons. There is no right way to do it. So we decided that our academy needed to offer consistent support and maximum flexibility. And that is our goal. We want to be here for you when you need us, and we want to work with your particular needs.
For families who homeschool because your child is a high-achiever and isn’t being challenged, or for the student who needs more time to grasp a concept, for students who prefer smaller settings, or students who need less noise and chaos, or for students who need a more flexible schedule for athletics, travel, health concerns. For parents who love to teach their children but whose children need more social stimulation from peers who will challenge and stretch them academically, or parents who love to homeschool their children but who also have work commitments. Maybe you homeschool because you want to select the curriculum, have more guidance of the things that influence your children, have less government involvement in educating your children—whatever the reason you homeschool, we want to be the solution to your homeschooling needs.
From the student’s perspective – we want to help you reach your maximum potential academically and socially. Let’s look at this from your perspective:
Each Learning Period consists of 45 minutes of independent, academic study time and 15 minutes of social, interactive, creative-exploration free-time.
The first 45 minutes of each Learning Period is dedicated to Academic study time. During this time, students work quietly on academic content with the support and supervision of a certified teacher.
The remaining 15 minutes of each hour is set aside for Free-time activities which consists of playing games such as Ping-Pong, chess, or board games; reading books; creating, inventing, and making projects using the tools and materials from the Student Workshop.
What if a student is registered for a Club period?
Students participating in a Club spend the first 45 minutes dedicated to working toward the goals that the club members established in their first couple of meetings. Each week they discuss the club’s subject area, they work on the goals that the club members have set in order to reach the club’s culminating event at the end of the semester. This is a time for socializing in a productive way, working together with their peers to solve real-world problems. This is where the application of what they are learning comes into play. This is where they realize that their education MATTERS, and what they know can make a difference in the real world.
Parent’s register students for a one-hour time slot once a week for the length of the semester. During that time slot, students can participate in a club if one is offered during that period, or in academic study time for the first 45 minutes of the period and free-time to learn and explore socially during the last 15 minutes of that period.
