- Learning Styles: Our Individualized Academic Curriculum ensures that all students work on materials at the level for which they can be appropriately challenged and experience success.
- Instructional Approach: The models and strategies used are research-based and effective in ensuring student success. Instructional Approach Humanex Academy teachers adapt course materials and instructional techniques based on each student`s needs while focusing on specific content related to the Colorado Model Content Standards and on skills necessary for academic and career success. We strive to challenge each student in ways unavailable in a traditional and public school education. To meet this challenge, our staff is highly trained in diverse teaching methods. The instructional approach implemented by teachers is multi-faceted and utilizes a combination of instructional delivery and assessment models to ensure students master the skills and content being taught.
- Honor Classes: We offer honors and college-bound classes in all subject areas. Each student works from a syllabus designed to include individual learning goals, expectations, and time lines. This helps students develop a sense of accountability as they work at a pace that will allow them to meet their goals. Our staff prompts students to find internal motivation with an emphatic, solution-focused approach to complete the class rather than have a teacher do the work for them.
- College Classes: Students are also allowed to take college courses and receive Humanex Academy credit. This gives students, who might be anxious about what a college class is like, to take a class while they receive support they may need from Humanex.
- Transition Planning The focus of our Transition Planning program is to help students select colleges, prepare for the SAT test, write college essays, and complete college applications. Students who are pursuing vocational training use this class to find, to apply, and/or to secure an internship at a vocational school.
- Credit for Service: Humanex offers academic credit for holding a part-time job, for community service, or volunteering in order to encourage students to investigate various careers.
- Support Programs Students who attend Humanex Academy actively work towards being prepared to walk whatever avenue of life they choose after completion of our program. As a result of our Support Programs, many of our students have learned and practiced the skills they need to succeed, learned how to utilize their strengths, and learned how to be advocates of their strong self-knowledge. Therefore, Humanex Academy excels at preparing students for life beyond high school.
- Humanex Academy is fully accredited by AdvancED
- Middle School Completion Requirements: Our coursework is designed for 8th graders to earn a Certification of Completion in order for them to meet the new demands and challenges of high school.
- High School Graduation Requirements: Our high school graduation requirements identify the credits that all students must earn in order to receive their high school diploma and are equivalent to the Colorado state requirements.

Several private schools offer a whole academic year abroad. Still others offer a summer abroad.
The Department of Homeland Security recently announced that it would enforce a 2017 policy of requiring visa applicants to list their social media handles. More about this and how it impacts international students wishing to attend American K-12 private schools.
