The Alexandria Academy
5.00 (1 review)
- The Alexandria Academy was founded in 1988 as an alternative academic program for gifted students.
- Since that time, it has grown to include special needs children and anyone for whom the existing traditional system does not fit.
- The school does not support classes but rather one-on-one mentorship between a teacher and a student.
- The philosophy of the school has always been that young people should be taught with intellectual peers rather than chronological peers.

- Our students come from all over the greater Los Angeles area as well as from other states. We have taught young people from Los Angeles, Agoura, Riverside, Santa Clarita, Pasadena, Glendale, Norco, Encino, Oxnard, etc., as well as students from Florida, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Illinois, and Oregon. Our students go on to colleges and universities all over the country including Harvard, Brown, Columbia, USC, UC schools around the state, Reed College, and many more. Most have been able to enter their first choice schools. We do not use a set curriculum. Instead, the teacher assesses the student`s abilities in every subject area and then uses a curriculum which best fits with the child`s abilities and needs. Because of this, a student may be working in one curriculum for math but in another for English. This is true for all curricular areas: English, history, science, mathematics, ethics, electives, etc. The Alexandria Academy has found great success with a wide variety of students. Some have come from the entertainment industry, from athletics, music, dance, and writing. We have more recently been sought to educate students who are having trouble learning in the traditional atmosphere. We have had students with Asperger`s Syndrome, depression and other problems which have caused the parents and counselors to look for alternative education opportunities. We work with any child to help him/her reach full natural potential.

Depending on their family circumstances, our Presidents received a wide range of primary and secondary schooling.

A fascinating look at where our first Presidents went to school.

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.
