“At AOA, in the classroom from Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade and Post Graduate, our curriculum is designed to develop students’ critical thinking skills and their creative thinking skills. As a result, AOA graduates are able to thrive in college and in their professional careers thereafter to a greater degree than students from other schools.”  
Dr. Goodman is very proud of our unique school culture and its environment and believes it benefits students in a way few boarding schools can match.
AOA is an extraordinary place. Our world-class faculty understands that education must go beyond simple “content mastery”. An AOA education is designed to cultivate a curious mind – to engage students in inquiry-based learning – to develop students’ ability to solve problems in new and unique ways. In short, AOA is the school where students in grades PK-12 learn to think creatively.

At AOA students learn and develop within an authentic global context that few schools can match. Our program is as ambitious as our students – beginning with students as young as pre-kindergarten age and moving up through the high school years. Our community also has the multicultural and international breadth to match that ambition. Fed by a robust boarding program in grades 7-12 and PG, the AOA student body is made up of students from 22 countries, 8 states, and 2 territories.
