Vision and Mission
In many ways, Aurora’s achievement results mirror those of several other urban school districts that face similar challenges. Across the nation, achievement gaps persist and poor and minority students continue to face huge academic inequities recognize that with the continual advance of technology and the changing workplace and social conditions, schools have to evolve and rethink current practices and challenge today’s paradigms.
Our school, the Academy of Advanced Learning, will be a model for the next generation of schools. Working systemically and using sound, but different approaches to operating schools, we will prepare students, especially poor and minority students, for a Year 2030 workplace and college.
The vision of the Academy of Advanced Learning is founded on the notion that a Year 2030 workplace will require new skills and the ability to think critically.
The Academy of Advanced Learning prepares students for college and the modern workplace. Through personalized learning and a focus on critical thinking skills, our schools close achievement gaps and allow every student to reach her/his potential.
Our mission focuses on building a high performance and caring culture that has high expectations and where the main instructional delivery model is personalized learning.
A team of dedicated teachers and leaders,
working in a high performance and caring culture,
maintains an intense focus on academic achievement
and performance outcomes. Students find success and are engaged
through personalized learning, which allows students to work at their own pace and learn in a way more suited to their strengths. The Academy
holds high expectations for students and staff and
believes that everyone can create their future.
