What are parents saying about your program?

"This is a phenomenal program, and I would be happy to recommend it to other families, as well.  I'm so relieved that we found it.  I'm not sure how much room you have in this program, so I haven't posted anything on my various moms' groups.  If you have room, please let me know!  I do think it could really benefit other families with super smart, and self-motivated children who are not doing well in zoom classes that are focused on the kids falling behind."

What is the difference between AIA and traditional brick-and-mortar college preparatory American high schools?

There is no difference in the college-preparatory curriculum between AIA and traditional American high schools. There is a significant difference in the flexibility offered to all AIA students in the way they can earn their high school credits online. AIA utilizes some of the best digital curriculum available anywhere.

Is AIA less challenging than other traditional accredited American high schools?

Simply put, No! As an accredited American high school, AIA offers a flexible alternative for students; it is not an easier option than traditional accredited high schools. At AIA, every student has a "front row seat."  Our courses engage students in real-life projects, requiring the use of critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and the ability to apply the knowledge they have acquired.

As a parent will I be kept informed of my students' progress?

Absolutely! As a parent, you will most likely be receiving more updates and information about your student's progress than ever before. We strongly feel that a parent's involvement in their child's education is critical to their overall success. We are providing the student performance updates for parent after every single class.
