SMALLER CLASS SIZE
About 16 students per class means your child will have more specialized instruction and attention compared to a class with 22-30 students, which is the typical class size for charter/public schools.
The traditional whole group teaching method doesn't guarantee students are being taught on their level. We spend a large part of our instructional time allowing students to learn in hands-on activities in independent and teacher-led groups.
At AYA, we want our students to experience the world around them instead of just reading books about it. We are committed to giving students experiential opportunities by taking trips outside of the classroom and campus. Examples of field trips include: High Museum of Art, Atlanta Botanical Garden, Jr. Achievement, Discovery Center, Civil Rights Museum, and area high school tours for middle school students.
We see every one of our students as a child of God. We seek to nurture every student at AYA while setting clear boundaries to help them be successful. We are passionate about noticing the positive in every child and vigilant to hold kids accountable to being their best.
The AYA Spirit
At AYA, our community members are filled with the spirit of learning and joy every day. Walking through our hallways, you can sense the energy of our teachers and students. Our partnership approach reflects our belief that we are stronger and can accomplish more together.
As a PreK- eighth grade school, our objective is to graduate students who strive to continue their education --100% of our graduates matriculate to high school. Our students' high school success reflects the strength of our academic and character development program.
