At AUL, we understand that one size does not fit all. And so, we have a selection of programs that will help you show your absolute best in the learning environment.
Success Academy is a mini-school within AUL that is entering its 2nd school year. Students in Success Academy are traditional 9th graders coming out of middle school OR they are older students who have less than 50 credits towards their high school career. Being under credited means that something has not been working for you at school. Maybe work and providing for your family has been getting in your way. Perhaps just getting to school has become difficult. Maybe the transition from middle school to high school left you bewildered and without important organization skills. Regardless, Success Academy exists as an entry-into-AUL cushion, offering students the ability to learn skills that will help them be accountable towards their learning, while acquiring communication, advocacy, behavior, and mindfulness experiences through the two-trimester Discovery Program.
Topics covered in the Discovery Program include Effective Group Skills And Team Building, Anger Management, Effective Communication, Assertiveness Training, Problem Solving, and Conflict Resolution. Students experience small class sizes with two adults who help new AUL students navigate their first couple of months at their new school. Upon successful completion of the Discovery Program, students in the Success Academy join the main culture of AUL within the Saber Academy.
Students in Success Academy also take Math, English, and an Elective hour class during the school day.
Saber Academy is the main culture of AUL and contains the majority of our students. Saber Academy students are older, may have been told they would not graduate at their neighborhood school, have work that gets in the way of their school day, and are looking for a focused track to high school graduation. They are students in the 10th through 12th grades who have at least 50 high school credits completed. Students are exposed to learning in the Math, Science, English, and Social Studies realms. Students in Saber Academy have the opportunity to venture off campus for lunch.
