AOA is an extraordinary place. Our world-class faculty understands that education must go beyond simple “content mastery.” An AOA education is designed to cultivate a curious mind – to engage students in inquiry-based learning – to develop students’ ability to solve problems in new and unique ways. In short, AOA is the school where students in grades PK-12 learn to think creatively. Our program is as ambitious as our students – beginning with students as young as prekindergarten age and going through high school. And our community has the multicultural and international breadth to match that ambition. Fed by a robust boarding program in grades 7-12, the AOA student body is made up of students from 13 countries over 5 continents. At AOA students learn and develop within an authentic global context that few schools can match.
