We achieve Academic Excellence by offering classrooms rich with cross-content learning experiences, active learning, collaboration, and project-based assignments.
Although we encourage our students to use Critical Thinking to make reasoned judgments that are logical and well thought out, Creative Thinking is incorporated into all classrooms to guide students beyond content mastery and stimulate discovery and innovation. Our classroom lessons, across all levels, promote perspective-taking and are designed to foster fluent, flexible and original thinking.
An essential component of leadership and academic excellence, Public Speaking occupies an important place in our curriculum and is a focus in Lower, Middle and Upper School classes.
Students from 22 countries, 8 states and 2 territories create a unique opportunity for developing Global Awareness right on our campus. AOA’s vibrant and diverse student community of passionate learners bring each other a wealth of cultural perspective and understanding that allows each student to gain a unique view of the world around them and graduate as global citizens.
