The American Academy For Young Professionals

The American Academy For Young Professionals Photo #1 - Preparing NOW to lead TOMORROW - National & Global Leaders!
  • The American Academy for Young Professionals is Alabama's 1st boutique education model for middle/high private/church school that specializes in individual student achievement, acceleration, advancement, and leadership development.
  • Our main niche is the ability to transform our system, immediately, to facilitate each student's individual academic and leadership development and success. It is our belief that a student in middle school should be preparing for high school and a student in high school should be preparing for college, a career institution, entrepreneurship, or immediate employment.
  • Classroom overcrowding and teaching everyone the same skills, especially at the high school level, is proving outdated, impractical, and disasterous.
  • AA-YP students are being educated as individuals and empowered for their individual success tracks.
