A Curriculum that's Student Centered

ASA limits enrollment to 70 students to ensure unique and individualized instruction. The size of ASA allows teachers and administrators the opportunity to customize the curriculum of students whose needs are more specific.

student centered curriculum

One of the unique aspects of ASA is class size. Class size is small enough (five to seven students per class) for students to get the personal attention they need, yet large enough to encourage interaction and discussion. ASA limits enrollment to 70 students to ensure unique and individualized instruction. The minimum course load at ASA is five class periods per day and the maximum is seven class periods a day. Students are individually scheduled in blocks of time Monday through Thursday. Friday is reserved for enrichment tutorials, group workshops and extra-curricular activities.

In keeping with its philosophy of providing structured, individualized education, ASA offers a standard college-preparatory curriculum along with advanced placement and honors courses. The size of ASA allows teachers and administrators the opportunity to customize the curriculum of students whose needs are more specific. A minimum of 24 credits (48 semesters) is required for graduation. However, students wanting a more challenging curriculum can earn additional credits and receive recommended or distinguished honors.

In addition to courses in English, history, mathematics, science, and foreign language, ASA provides a wide variety of electives: art, web design and applications, physical fitness, psychology, speech, forensic science, sociology, and yearbook, and many more through our virtual academy.
