School Notes

  • We believe our students are exceptional and that each one possesses natural gifts and talents that can be nurtured while supporting any learning differences.After accepting a student to the Academy, we use diagnostic testing to evaluate the individuals strengths and weakness so we can develop a curriculum customized to his or her needs.
  • Our low student-to-teacher ratios allow our teachers the flexibility to support each students individual learning style in these plans. Some of the programs we use in our school include: Wilson Reading, Lindamood-Bell (VV program), Project READ, LANGUAGE, Math-u-see, Saxon Math, Mathability, and Connections by EPS.
  • Through our educational programs, we aim to build our students confidence and self-esteem while strengthening their learning skills so they can achieve personal success wherever they go. 
  • Our middle and high school programs offer fully-accredited national curricula. State regulations require a minimum of 4.5 hours of daily instruction in reading, language arts, math, social studies, and science; however, at the Academy, we exceed the standard by offering instruction daily from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm in all major subject areas.
  • We balance our individualized learning environment with a combination of traditional classroom instruction and more than 140 online courses administered with a staff facilitator for personal support. We offer extracurricular courses such as keyboarding and taekwondo, as well as a variety of AP and college prep courses. Our program flexibility allows children to enroll as full-time or part-time students.

School Reviews

AOI has been our family's saving grace. My son was struggling in public school because of his dyslexia and he was not getting the support he needed then we came to AOI and his life changed. He is so much more confident and he actually enjoys going to school now. The teachers and staff at the school are amazing and it is small enough that it has a family feel to it that cannot be beat!
