AA-YP Advisory Board, does just that - Advise! 


They offer their advice, expertise, insight, and wisdom which helps to facilitate progressive and sustainable academic growth for this boutique model of education, which extends beyond middle and high school.  Our advisors comprise outstanding college and high school educators, as well as leaders with an array of credentials and expertises which makes them invaluable resources for AA-YP.   Two have served on SACS accrediting panels for K-12 schools, as well as colleges.  Their service has extended beyond advice to screening parents and students for admissions, teaching courses, and facilitating leadership events, as well as graduation speakers.
