American Academy is a Monday-Friday hybrid education program; our students attend project-based classes 2-3 days per week and work at home on the other days. We are seeking several multi-subject teachers, grades K-8 for the 2022-2023 school year. Our classes are small, with a maximum of 8-14 students. We have two campuses; one in Mission Viejo near Saddleback College and the other in Newport Beach near John Wayne Airport. Teacher would be required to work 2 days at one location and 3 days at the other.
We find that students learn best through both an independent study curriculum that meets the state standards and is targeted to their exact learning pace and ability as well as through hands-on/ project-based classes that also meet the state standards. We also find that multi-age classrooms, parent involvement, community interactions, school traditions, and developing real-life skills are important elements in ensuring students' success.
