Ascending to Accomplishment

An AYA graduate leaves our halls to pursue a high school diploma having had the opportunity to reap the benefits of transformative academic and co-curricular programs. Beginning in Pre-K, we focus on individual students by maintaining small class sizes, emphasizing meaningful student-teacher relationships and fostering an inclusive, nurturing learning environment. Our students receive a quality, college-prep education in all core subjects including Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Spanish and Bible. Additionally, our program includes co-curricular offerings in art, P.E, leadership, etiquette, and public speaking.

All programming at AYA focuses on character development and building a strong spiritual foundation. Our students graduate knowing who they are and WHOSE they are. Our highly-experienced faculty partner with our parents as we prepare our young people for success beyond AYA.
