Academics Come First
At Auldern Academy academics come first. Our curriculum is rigorous and our attention to the individual learning needs of our students is unparalleled.
The faculty of Auldern Academy excels at helping students who have fallen behind academically to catch up to their peers. The students are able to gain ground quickly by participating in flexible programming. Our girls boarding school offers one-quarter and one-half credit courses, and allows students to take classes out of sequence if necessary. Girls may also work to catch up during a Summer Program.Open enrollment allows parents to place their daughters with us throughout the year. We understand that math is an unavoidably sequential subject so Auldern Academy offers an in-house math tutor to help mid-year enrollees to catch up quickly.
Each of the four grades taught at Auldern Academy are considered college preparatory and include Honors and AP coursework. Our small classes rarely exceed ten girls; therefore each student enjoys a high level of interaction, communication and one-on-one time with her teachers. A personal faculty advisor is assigned to each student and assists with academic planning. The advisor communicates with parents, staff and referring professionals regarding the student’s progress. Auldern strives for 100% college acceptance of our students.
