AUP is a vibrant and visionary school community that uniquely integrates STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) curriculum, global citizenship, and internship opportunities into a 24-7 technology-rich learning environment. Students are immersed in hands-on, experiential learning as well as collaborative discourse, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving as they partake in the many college preparatory and AP courses offered at AUP.
Our instructional methodology is centered on a blended learning approach. The combination of face-to-face instruction with technology-mediated activities provides students greater access to individualized and differentiated instruction, group collaboration, and communication with faculty and peers. We set our class sizes small so as to allow for increased participation from the students and more personal attention to the students’ academic progress in meeting the school’s curriculum objectives.
At AUP, students complete an integrated research project in the second semester of each academic year, culminating with a senior research project. As part of the students’ overall educational experience, AUP partners with domestic and international businesses and organizations to provide summer internship opportunities for students to gain real-world learning experiences.
