Welcome to Academy of Arts and Sciences!
Design: We offer an extended school day and academic year to allow for true mastery of the curriculum.
Curriculum: Our content-rich Paragon Curriculum converges high tech with the humanities, combining the rigors of a classical education with the relevance required by contemporary culture.
