AIA is dedicated to developing a learning environment for students in the USA & abroad to study a traditional American education. AIA provides year-round personalized learning plans for each student, giving them the flexibility to learn independently or with live instruction, maximizing their learning potential!

 

Students and parents have two main choices in AIA's Middle School Courses:

  • Live Instruction - while using the learning platform, which follows approved curriculum, students also have the pleasure of having a live certified teacher directing the class, encouraging participation and assisting students to be the best they can be. 

  • Independent Study - this option also uses the learning platform, which follows approved curriculum, students have no live instruction, making this an ideal option for those who are homeschooling their children.  For each subject the child is taking, they will be assigned a teacher mentor whom they can contact with any questions or challenges.  

Required Courses* - if a student is enrolled full time with AIA, students must take those courses.  For students NOT enrolled full time, they can choose Required Courses or Electives.
