It was a pleasure to work at American Academy of Strategic Education. The emphasis on Project-Based Learning was key to meeting individual student’s needs. Students use what they are learning to address real life challenges and use critical thinking to craft solutions. American Academy of Strategic Education endeavors to teach students how to think not what to think. After 20 plus years teaching in the public school system, American Academy was a refreshing change. The staff was dedicated and caring, as well as extremely talented and experienced. It was great working with students who were excited about learning and parents who were so engaged in their child’s education.

Our son loves American Academy of Strategic Education! It has been a perfect fit for us during a year of unknowns. Having a education routine with great friends and teachers helped us survive and thrive in 2020. If it wasn’t for homeschooling I would have never known he was so advanced in math. Now with us doing it together I know he is way ahead than other 1st graders. His Star testing for math came back Grade 3.5! He was lost in the crowd last year but this year he has flourished.
If you live in Orange County and are thinking about home schooling but are overwhelmed, don’t want to “do it” or “do it alone”, this academy is PERFECT!!! Angela and her staff really care about these kids and bend over backwards to help parents. I didn’t have a CLUE about homeschooling, didn’t want to do it, but my son REALLY was adamant about it, and he and Angela worked together and figured out a great plan for him and made it happen. He was almost 100% in charge of his own education most of high school, he got to pursue courses HE wanted to explore and got a great education.

Highly recommend! My son has been going to American Academy of Strategic Education. We have been very impressed with their understanding of our son and the importance of attending to the whole child… They are always evolving and looking for best practices in this very fast paced shifting world. I am so grateful they truly care – not only in words, but actions.

We LOVE this academy! I was new to homeschooling and never thought I would do it until I found this academy! They have been so helpful and so attentive to my daughter. I love that I have the flexibility to tailor her learning programs and the teachers here can help her learn and reinforce what she is learning. I highly recommend this academy!

We are so grateful for American Academy and the service and education they provide. It’s really hard to find an educational center that will work with you. Thankfully, American Academy was very flexible. As a teacher myself, I really value that American Academy teachers promote higher level thinking skills with things like group discussions, projects, art, and STEM activities that don’t just rely on worksheet after worksheet. The kids always came home excited and I could tell by the things they were talking about that their brains had been very stimulated. Thank you, American Academy, for everything and for being a great service to our family!
