AAS is proud of our rich, rigorous, common core, standards-based, middle and high school curriculum, which is provided through Fuel Education. Fuel Education offers AAS scholars a fully online curriculum delivery service, complete with teacher-led virtual classes known as “class connect sessions” in which scholars receive synchronous direct instruction in their core academic classes. Our teachers host office hours in which scholars can obtain live support on classwork. All scholars in grades 6th through 12th grade submit their course work online through their teacher’s online classroom.
High School scholars are offered more than 130 online courses from which to choose, including four core subject levels: Core, Comprehensive, Honors, and AP. Through this diverse range of options, scholars benefit from being assigned a school counselor who will assist each one in creating an individualized four year high school plan specific to their goals, to ensure they graduate in four years and are ready for college or career.
In addition to our enriching lessons, all of our unit lessons are followed by assessments. These assessments allow our teachers to monitor and ensure that each child has mastered a particular area before moving on. This unique, individualized approach allows each scholar to go as fast or slow as needed, as long as they follow the teacher created pacing plans and complete work in accordance with AAS policies and guidelines. The online assessments are integrated with the planning and progress tools, making it easy to find the right pace by subject and to stay on track.
