Academics

Learn in the classroom and through mentorship with local STEM businesses.

Rigorous Academic Foundations

To ensure students are well-grounded academically, AAST will work with students to build a rigorous foundational knowledge in grades 6-9, preparing them for attaining high academic performance in the critical later high school years. Using an interdisciplinary approach, engineering design will be an integral part of the STEM curriculum that will fuse Science, Mathematics, and Technology courses. 

Beginning in the middle school years, students will participate in mentorships (as explained above) that help them identify and begin to pursue career and/or college interests. 

By the end of 10th grade, students will have a career or post-secondary plan in place and may be enrolled in Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) or job shadowing.

Curriculum

STEM

AAST will implement an interdisciplinary and engineering design-based STEM courses throughout variety of tools, hardware, software, and other resources will be utilized to design the STEM program at AAST. Science lab facilities will be a priority as the school facility is developed. The following are indicative of the inquiry-based STEM selections made to date.

Mathematics

Mathematics is the language of STEM. The goal of math instruction at AAST will be to provide foundational and working/applicable knowledge for everyday life and to develop a solid platform for higher order learning. AAST will utilize a sequential, research-based mathematics curriculum. The following are indicative of the inquiry-based STEM selections made to date.

Literacy

AAST recognizes that reading is critical to students’ overall success. The following are indicative of the inquiry-based STEM selections made to date.
