HOW WE WORK

We believe our students are exceptional and that each one possesses natural gifts and talents that can be nurtured while supporting any learning differences.

After accepting a student to the Academy, we use diagnostic testing to evaluate the individual’s strengths and weakness so we can develop a curriculum customized to his or her needs.  Our low student-to-teacher ratios allow our teachers the flexibility to support each student’s individual learning style in these plans.  Some of the programs we use in our school include:

  • Wilson Reading
  • Lindamood-Bell (VV program)
  • Project READ
  • LANGUAGE
  • Math-u-see
  • Saxon Math
  • Mathability
  • Connections by EPS

Through our educational programs, we aim to build our students’ confidence and self-esteem while strengthening their learning skills so they can achieve personal success wherever they go. 

Our middle and high school programs offer fully-accredited national curricula. State regulations require a minimum of 4.5 hours of daily instruction in reading, language arts, math, social studies and science; however, at the Academy we exceed the standard by offering instruction daily from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm in all major subject areas.

We balance our individualized learning environment with a combination of traditional classroom instruction and more than 140 online courses administered with a staff facilitator for personal support. We offer extracurricular courses such as keyboarding and taekwondo, as well as a variety of AP and college prep courses. Our program flexibility allows children to enroll as full-time or part-time students.

“Finding out your child has a need or deficit that requires highly specialized, intensive or prescriptive instruction not available through traditional instruction would be very overwhelming BUT FOR the fact that Academy of Innovation provides these resources. As an educator, I can attest to the research-based methods and pedagogies practiced by the instructors. Ava does not provide simply more of what is given in the classroom, but specialized, proven strategies that are effective and offer my child the personalized and scientifically-based instruction she has to have to be successful. I cannot imagine how grave my daughter’s academic future would be without Ava White.”  -AOI parent
