American Academy of Strategic Education was created to support parents in educating their children the way they feel is best. Parents, teachers, and students collaborate to design the child’s learning plan. Children experience learning that is targeted to their particular needs in our small classes with qualified teachers and at home through an individualized independent study curriculum. Children attend American Academy two academic days and one elective day per week. We also offer monthly field trips for the entire family.
High School students enjoy a great deal of flexibility in creating their schedule and selecting their curriculum on the pathway to graduation.
Students may select an independent study curriculum from a variety of WASC accredited and NCAA approved sources such as charter schools, independent study programs, and colleges. Classes can include honors, a-g, and AP. Our caring, certified teachers are dedicated to partnering with families and helping all students succeed. Students spend 3-4 periods each day working on their independent study curriculum with teacher’s supervision and tutoring, if needed. Students also enjoy optional Life Skill classes, P.E., and a variety of social and academic clubs.
Academy students continue to work on independent study at home to meet weekly goals and ultimately earn their high school diploma.
