Imagine teaching your gifted child in a way that meets their academic, emotional, and social needs in a way that is tailored to their learning style. ASALC is a wonderful collaboration between parent, teacher, and child to reach a child's potential. Lessons are planned around their personal interests, my daughter is reading CS Lewis so her grammar exercises include questions about Narnia. If they find an interesting bug at recess it could be under the microscope, researched, and written about by the end of day. They aren't pigeonholed into a grade, a 6 year old may work on algebra or a fifth grade spelling list without feeling exceptional or intimidated. The school provides the flexibility of homeschool without the lesson planning and isolation. We're free to go on vacation or request a curriculum; typing, cursive, piano, latin roots etc. and are updated weekly on progress. While the subject matter is advanced the kids feel like they're just having fun with their peers and Ms. Julie. It's been an unexpected joy to watch my daughter's intellectual curiosity develop. We couldn't be happier and wish every child was able to have such a positive experience both socially and academically.
