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.

This is the age when learning needs really begin to change from child to child. Our Bridge program was developed to support students’ progression to the Academy program through an individualized approach. Students enjoy developing new skills such as researching and discussing ideas and concepts in a meaningful way.

Students begin creating and designing sections of teacher-guided projects as they continue to learn core subjects through meaningful project-based lessons. It becomes increasingly important as students to learn new concepts, that they are taught at each child’s ability level and style. We target children’s particular learning needs and design an independent study plan that suits each child. This approach to learning reduces student’s anxiety levels, and better ensures that they do not experience foundational knowledge gaps.

Students spend time working on their independent study curriculum with teacher’s supervision for one period each day. Students also enjoy P.E., recess, and a variety of social and academic clubs. Bridge students continue to work on independent study one to two periods per day at home on the days they are not at the academy. Learn more about Bridge
