Redefining Education for Teens
An engaged community of students, parents, and professionals collaborating to provide educational opportunities for high school age teens in Western New York encouraging critical thinking, confidence, and social responsibility.
It’s about education, not school.
Students have freedom to flourish by crafting an integrated educational plan utilizing study center classes, experiential learning, and various community resources for a meaningful and personalized high school experience.
Intensive two to four week seminars encourage students to delve deeply into the subjects of literature, science, history, and mathematics. Our rich and rigorous array of seminar topics range from A to Z – literally! The 2013-2014 offerings included Aviation to Zoology as well as Animal Behavior, Astronomy, Botany, Cell Biology, Chemistry, Economics, Field Ecology, Global Peacemakers, Introduction to Business, History Through Music, the Odyssey, Poetry, Projective Geometry, Thermodynamics, Transcendentalist, and World Cultures. Students also produced and performed the full-length drama A Christmas Carol.
How a student reaches an answer is just as important as the answer itself. Young adults are guided to develop critical thinking, communication, and collaboration skills by asking challenging questions, contributing to thought-provoking discussions, writing extensively, and participating in experiential learning activities.
Academe of Aurora is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational corporation that operates on a co-op model. Yearly tuition and fees are determined by the number of students enrolled, program offerings, donations, volunteer schedules and community resources. Our goal is to make this educational opportunity affordable to all our families.
Academe of Aurora seeks self-motivated, socially conscious young adults who are eager to learn, collaborate, and connect with the world in meaningful ways.
