Tuition and Financial Support
The most effective methodology for learning. Based on research in Neuroscience, psychology, and biology, Brain-based learning acknowledges how the brain processes information, patterns, meaningfulness, metacognition, emotions, body rhythms, movement, learning style and even gender.
Aurora incorporates the principles and practices of Neuroscience (Brain-based learning or Mind/Brain Education) to accelerate learning. We typically see between 1-3 years of progress each 12 weeks. This is the basis for Aurora's K-12+2+2 Program.
Aurora Schools
Each student receives standardized testing at the beginning of each year. A personalized learning plan is established for that year and progress is bench marked on a quarterly basis. The learning curve is tracked and regular adjustments are made to maintain consistent progress and accelerated learning.
Each student has a customized schedule
based on the Personalized Learning Plan. Each student is assigned an Academic Adviser to ensure success.
Many students are active learners. Therefore, we often bring learning to life, "hands on." From science projects, stock market and genealogy projects to monthly field trips, our students engage in all aspects of planning and implementing their projects.
The 21st century student is constantly engaged in learning. Therefore, sitting in a class for 8 or 16 weeks can actually slow down the learning and doesn't take into consideration all the other learning opportunities in a child's life. Competency- and mastery-based learning gives students credit for learning in and out of the classroom.
Making Every Student Successful takes dedication...
Join us in Blended Classes
Also called hybrid classes, blended classes allow students to take
our accredited online courses
within a classroom with teachers, and classmates. Weekly time
on-campus, blended with online learning anytime, everywhere = accelerated learning!
We are committed to state of the art accelerated learning. And we are committed to affordability. We keep our tuition and fees as affordable as possible, participate in Tax Credit Scholarship and other scholarship programs and partner with foundations and corporations to provide additional assistance for our families.

New Courses Added Regularly
Our curriculum offerings continue to grow. We're adding nearly 40 more electives - many of which are vocationally oriented - to our curriculum for Fall 2013.

A new, extensive computer sciences program is planned for rollout in Spring of 2014!
