Welcome to AAS

The Academies of Arts and Sciences are some of California’s leading charter schools of choice. Parents from across California choose us for the 21st century online learning options provided through our cutting edge curriculum and our focus on the Arts, Sciences, Technology, and World Language acquisition. Success in balancing the development of the whole child is central to our mission and to leading and serving the parents and students of California.

The academic abilities of our diverse student body vary, however all students are committed to reaching their full potential. In the high school years of our program (grades 9 through 12), students can access a range of rigorous academic programs. Access to the numerous Advanced Placement classes is open to all students looking to further their knowledge in areas that will aid in their college / university studies. Students choosing to take an alternative path also thrive in our balanced learning environment, which builds a wide variety of skills critical to their future success. Our students thrive on the expectation of maximizing their potential in our academic programs.

In addition to earning their diplomas, our students learn and develop leadership skills that will ensure their success in whatever future they choose to pursue beyond their AAS experience. Our students stride into the Global Public Space, confident in their ability to lead and support others, understand and appreciate their own cultures and personal histories, and are open to the perspectives, values and traditions of other individuals and communities. They understand the importance of intellectual, physical and emotional balance to achieve personal well-being, and their strengths and limitations in order to support their learning and personal development. Achieving our educational mission requires a partnership between students, parents and the school; we welcome your participation in fulfilling this all important mission.

The Academies of Arts and Sciences are committed to providing a rigorous, college ready, arts and science focused program of inquiry that meets the needs of all students. AAS offers the security of established structure and cutting edge online curriculum combined with contemporary, dynamic and innovative educational practice. Our highly qualified and skilled professional staff brings a wealth of experience and best practices from leading schools both with California and the United States. The diversity within the student population enhances the sense of community, and our small size enables us to maintain close and valued links with the members of our school community.

We trust you will visit us online for an information session, an event near you, or one of our campuses, and witness the importance we place on the intellectual, physical and emotional balance our learning community achieves daily, and in doing so, how your child/ren will benefit from joining us.
