Early Graduation Recognition
  

AA-YP's education model has allowed for students to graduate from high school early.  When a student has demonstrated excellence in grades, study habits, thinking skills, self-discipline and character, academic work ethics, and leadership ability, this student should have the opportunity to advance in their education.  A student, along with their parent(s) must apply to enter the early graduation program.  This program only benefits students in the ninth through the eleventh grades.  All parents and students must meet with administrator to find out requirements.  Once a student is accepted into the early graduation program, the parents and students will meet with the administor for development of the strategic plans for graduating and entering college.
