The faculty at The Academy for Individual Excellence is a team of caring people dedicated to a common philosophy of helping students excel personally and academically. Teachers strive to “learn” each student as they assist them in reaching their potential. AIE teachers believe academic material is important, but it is most important to teach each student to be a life-long learner. Learning for the sake of “getting a grade” is not stressed; learning for the attainment of knowledge is the priority.
The Academy for Individual Excellence maintains a low teacher-to-student ratio as we strive for close, professional relationships between students and instructors. It is our goal to offer students an opportunity to experience and gain confidence in seeking guidance and support from those in leading positions. We believe this interaction benefits all AIE students, those college-bound as well as those choosing to immediately enter the workplace upon graduation.
The teachers’ common goals, dedication of heart and belief in the educational methods have resulted in low teacher turnover at the Academy. This gives students a more stable experience and better opportunities for success.
The faculty and administration realize the importance of an accurate understanding of each student and the value of keeping parents well informed. Through the use of an open-door policy, teachers, parents and administrators are able to work together to help students achieve success.
