SECONDARY CURRICULUM

AYA is committed to providing the most rigorous curricula to reach their students full potential. The curricula must fulfill, at minimum, the standards set in the Florida Sunshine State Standards for each grade level as well as the option to meet the International Baccalaureate Diploma standards.  Students are instructed in the following academic subjects: Language Arts/English, Maths, Science, Social Studies, Arabic, Qur’an, Islamic Studies, Art, Physical Education, and computer courses at various skill levels. In addition, all middle school students enroll in a rigorous writing program.

Students are provided with a variety of opportunities to develop their personal and social skills, as well as to develop their Islamic values and character.

High school students are afforded different tracks to suit their various abilities, interests, and goals: IB Diploma, University Track, and AP courses.

 

HONORS’ CREDIT

Honors' Credit will be assigned to AYA courses which are determined to be at an Honors' Level. This determination will be made after comparing the standards of the course with the standards of honors' level courses taught in other prestigious private schools.

 

DUAL ENROLLMENT

Dual enrollment is an acceleration program that allows students in grades 10-12 to

take postsecondary coursework and simultaneously earn credit toward a

Baccalaureate degree at a Florida public or eligible private institution.

 

Florida Virtual School (FLVS)

Students in grades 7 - 12 will have the option of enrolling in coursework through the Florida Virtual School. Only students who are highly motivated learners should take such courses. There is no cost for courses or materials for Florida residents. It should be noted that, as with Dual Enrollment courses, coursework taken should be for enrichment and should not be for replacement of AYA courses and must be approved by the administration.
