About The American Academy by Graduation Alliance

In partnership with educators, government agencies, and community leaders across the nation, Graduation Alliance provides versatile pathways to high school graduation, fosters college and career exploration, and connects job creators to skilled and ready workers.

Since 2007, Graduation Alliance has partnered with more than 200 state agencies, school districts, community colleges, and workforce boards around the country to recruit, re-enroll, educate, and mentor students. Graduation Alliance also operates The American Academy, an exemplary online high school that is fully accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission, a division of AdvancED/Cognia.

The American Academy has offered a private, online, and fully accredited path for students around the world to recover credits, work ahead, take courses not available at their schools, augment their homeschool education, or earn a high school diploma from start to finish.

With a rigorous curriculum aligned to national standards, The American Academy offers more than 100 online classes in core subjects like English, math and science, and in electives such as psychology, marketing and child development.

The American Academy is accredited by AdvancED, the same non-profit and non-partisan organization that oversees the recognition and professional certification of more than 34,000 educational institutions around the world.

With state-licensed teachers and courses that can be taken at any time and from any location, earning credits with The American Academy has helped thousands of students stay on the road to graduation without interfering with a student’s job, family obligations or other responsibilities.

Our company is based on the principles of social entrepreneurship. We are changing the face of American education by delivering an educational experience designed to meet the individual needs of each student. TAA offers educational solutions ranging from individual courses for credit recovery and acceleration to a full diploma program. Students can begin their courses virtually any time and can work during the days and times that are most convenient for them. All core courses are led by state-licensed teachers and the school is accredited by AdvancED/Cognia.

Financial partners of The American Academy include New Markets Venture Partners, Anthony E. Meyer Family Foundation Inc., Signal Peak Ventures, Strada Education Network, and the Sorensen Family Foundation.
