Does Advance Learning Academy have any clubs?
Absolutely. As our school grows, we are continually adding activities and clubs based on our students’ interests. This school year alone we have had lego, theater/music, kickball, art and STEM club. Our clubs meet after school typically for one hour.
Our Secondary school has Club Fridays which takes place during the final period of the day on Fridays (not afterschool). Students can choose from a list of offered clubs and these clubs change every 9 weeks. This allows our older students a chance to get engaged with new topics with their friends without extending an already LONG school day. In addition to these Club Fridays, our Secondary school has hangouts afterschool that are scheduled about once per month on campus. These are times where students can stay as a group with their teachers and just “hangout” together. No formal club needed, as during this time of development, it is really more about socializing and having fun together.
Do you accept students with special needs?
While Advance Learning Academy is not a school designed for children with special needs, we believe in the value of diversity and work hard to create space in each classroom students who are an appropriate fit for our program. For a student to be admitted, they would need to be safe in a group setting, have strong communication and social skills, and able to work independently on assigned tasks.
Do you have a parent/teacher organization?
Yes. We have our Advance Parent Teacher Organization (APTO) that meets throughout the school year. They help set direction for our school and they assist in planning school functions and fundraisers. We truly value our families and their input. We consider our school a community of families all working together toward the shared goal of an awesome education.

How many students are in each class?
Our class size is limited to 12 students in our Elementary program and 16 in our Middle and High School programs. Each elementary class includes a lead teacher and an assistant teacher, allowing us to ensure a wealth of support and attention for each child.
Once students transition into our Secondary program, we want them to work in a smaller class size, but now more independently to help prepare them. We do continue to have resource teachers
What support services do you offer?
If a student requires any special services we do have access to a range of specialists including Speech/Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists and Behavior Analysts. When needed, these specialists join a child in class to work on goals alongside the child’s teachers. Our team-based approach allows specialists and our expert faculty to collaborate in an ongoing fashion and ensure each child achieves his/her goals.
