School Notes

  • The modern world is changing constantly. Experts have estimated that 47% of current professions will disappear in the near future. Therefore, it is crucial to reconsider the ways we educate our children. Where other schools seem to be struggling, we are just at the beginning. We help our students find their goals and we help them transform into highly competent people that will not have to struggle with adjusting to the world of tomorrow.
  • We assist our students in finding and developing their passions. We do not tell them what they should study. Our students learn to be responsible through the freedom of choice. They choose 5 subjects every trimester and then they fully dedicate their time to these subjects.
  • We understand that every student is a unique human being who requires a tailored approach. Therefore, we introduce a smaller number of subjects divided into difficulty sub-levels. We further offer personal counseling, specialized subjects and workshops.
  • Having thorough theoretical knowledge is only partial success. In order to be successful in their careers, students must obtain hands-on working experience. During project-based learning, our students try to set up a business, plan a marketing strategy or start a school magazine.
  • Our school keeps pace with current trends. The American Academy team consists of teachers carefully selected from all around the world. Each lesson is conducted in English and lasts 70 minutes.
  • Anyone can memorize tons of information. We, however, put emphasis on comprehension and the ability to present the information. Project-based learning helps our students understand information in context and teaches them how to distribute responsibilities among each other. Thematic-based learning helps our students focus on current events from all around the world once every trimester.
  • LD types supported: ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgaphia
  • School accreditations: A sister school of Foxcroft Academy a respected boarding school accredited by state of Maine and NEASC.
