Engaging, diverse experts with real-world experience
Our guides are engaging, interesting human beings, passionate about their domains, with professional experiences beyond the classroom with which they can relate skills and content to the real world. They also serve as one-on-one mentors to the students so that students are guided holistically in their experiences during their time at ATI, including student projects and personalized advice for life after ATI.
Purpose-driven teens ready to use autonomy responsibly
ATI is ideal for students who seek to gain greater control over their educational experience. Some have a definite passion and purpose. Others may simply know that they want greater autonomy to explore their interests more extensively than is possible at a conventional school. Students may use the autonomy to explore intellectual interests, creative passions, entrepreneurial initiatives, or future professional paths. The paths are as varied as are the students.
Intellectually rich academics combined with real world projects
Thought: ATI supports broad intellectual exploration across the curriculum, whether in core classes (Life Design, Socratic Humanities, Math Problem-Solving), academic classes (including history, science, literature, etc.) or project-based classes (design, entrepreneurship, film, art, etc. Industry: In addition, ATI supports the student development of concrete, real-world projects with the expectation that students develop adult-level skills or work alongside adult professional colleagues. We provide a liberal arts curriculum relevant to the 21st century.
