Our student-centered, flexible, personalized learning experience that parents and students both love now offers a new teacher-led, discussion-based learning program called Essential Discourses (see more details below), creating a unique and well-rounded educational experience to empower our students to achieve their full potential by building communication skills, encouraging critical thinking, and fostering other essential skills students need to be successful.

Changes are also coming to our Enrichment Lab Program! We are incorporating fun with education every Friday with our exciting elective classes, or on the First Fridays of the Month the option to attend an exciting field trip! (See more details below.) These activities will allow students to apply their academic learning in an exciting and practical way that allows them to gain real-world experience and perspective.

We are also growing and adding new locations! We heard your requests for other locations, so we are opening two more, one in Carlsbad and another in Costa Mesa.  

And last but not least, we are offering new pricing discounts! Pay tuition by May 1st to receive the best rates possible. Contact us to learn more

Info on New Programs

Essential DiscoursesED_Icon

Introducing Essential Discourses, a new program at American Academy that utilizes a discussion-based learning method to stimulate critical thinking and class participation from students, focusing on active engagement and learning through dialogue, rather than more passive approaches, such as lectures. This teacher-led/student-centric discussion also builds mutual respect and fosters personal responsibility, while strengthening student’s communication.

Essential Discourses are offered daily on Mondays through Thursdays, in the four core subjects: English language arts, math, science, and social studies. (More details to follow.)
