The Academy for Urban Scholars is a brick and mortar Non-Traditional High School serving high school aged students. Our curriculum is designed to provide differentiated learning for every student. Each student is given a customized Individual Learning Plan (ILP).  We believe each student has the ability to learn; therefore, we are willing to teach all students.



The Academy for Urban Scholars (AUS) mission is to produce work ready, college-ready, caring, articulate, critical thinkers, and lifelong learners, who are socially responsible, resilient, and productive citizens in an increasingly diverse global community and economy that leads to graduation.

The framework for success in life and learning expectations at The Academy for Urban Scholars are:

  • Integrity

  • Ownership

  • Leadership

  • Speak to Win

  • Commitment

Our philosophy is to encourage all students to learn and become contributing citizens.  In order to achieve this goal, the staff and programs are dedicated to maximizing students’ achievements and character development. AUS supports strong parental/community involvement, and promotes blended learning outcomes.
