Academy for International Education Charter School
A Tuition Free Public Charter School
Welcome to the Academy for International Education (AIE), a tutition free public charter school, South Florida’s first hybrid charter school model. This school opened in August, 2011, builds on the strengths of both magnets and charters. Utilizing leased space from Miami-Dade County Public Schools, AIE will offer a curriculum in which students are immersed in language acquisition, where the expectation is that they will graduate having learned two or more foreign languages. Using a blended instructional approach, students will have access to a wealth of educational resources via Computer/Software.
The curriculum will meet the intellectual, social and physical needs of the students so that the classroom becomes a world of opportunities for student learning and the embracing of the acquisition of knowledge, a second and eventually a third language. Students will have the opportunity to work and learn from classmates of different countries, cultures and backgrounds. Through technology, they will be a part of small learning communities throughout the world working on projects based on interest and participate in classes where academic achievement is celebrated.
Students will learn the importance of becoming bilingual and biliterate individuals in a global society. The curriculum will be enriched by having students experience seminars with bilingual professionals, opportunities for academic-related field trips, guest speakers and use of technology enriched instruction. The program of study will create an environment which supports creative and independent academic exploration with real-world relevance.
When students graduate from the Academy for International Education Charter School, they leave not only with a solid educational foundation, but they will also take with them a genuine understanding and respect for the international world around them. With an accumulation of language study from Kindergarten, students will graduate being able to read, write and speak in the target world language.
Vision The vision of Academy for International Education Charter School is to prepare our students to be independent multilingual citizens in a global society.
Mission The mission of Academy for International Education Charter School is to provide students with a comprehensive international education through the use of technology and language acquisition. Students will become life-long inquisitive learners and utilize this knowledge across international boundaries.
