Explore the four-year plan



First year Academy students focus on identity and self-awareness, developing an understanding of their personality, learning style, and personal strengths. Students develop an academic foundation and personal maturity necessary for the college environment.



Second-year students build upon their newfound awareness for their strengths and interests to refine their understanding of career choices and civic engagement. Students explore career options and fields of study that help lay the foundation for their plans after high school.



Third-year students refine their plan beyond high school and build the strengths and talents that apply to their career & college major. Students join a college that  provides opportunity for AOC staff to channel a student's classroom contributions to their strengths and talents. 



Fourth-year students look to bridge their work at AOC to their next phase of life. Students develop a Capstone project that addresses a need in the community. AOC colleges encourage students to explore college pathways, develop portfolios, and guide extracurricular choices.
