About Us

Albert Einstein Academy for Letters, Arts, and Sciences (AEALAS) is a non-profit, co-educational, open enrollment, public charter school organization, serving students in kindergarten through grade twelve. AEALAS, Inc. currently operates three school campuses with a total enrollment of approximately one thousand students. The campuses are located in the cities of Santa Clarita, Beverly Hills, and Agua Dulce.

 

The Albert Einstein Academy is founded on the principles that success in the 21st century world requires an education that provides each individual with critical thinking skills, excellent academic preparation, comprehensive cross cultural-awareness, and technological adeptness. Based on a pressing community need, as described by local parents and community leadership, the Albert Einstein Academies strive to prepare students for both knowledge-based careers and lives as members of a democratic society through class work that emphasizes critical thinking skills, global awareness, and programmatic enrollment in world language classes.

 

The school purpose and vision of the Albert Einstein Academy is based on student needs, current educational research and the belief that all students can achieve at high levels. The purpose and goal of all stakeholders within the Albert Einstein Academy School community is to provide a program that is rigorous, coherent, and relevant for all levels of students (high-achievers, low-achievers, ELL, SPED, etc.) as they prepare for the challenges of college, career, and life beyond high school.

 

Our Mission Statement, our articulation of schoolwide learner outcomes (SLOs), along with our culture of tolerance and inclusion, demonstrate our commitment to the belief that all of our students can achieve at a high level. The Mission Statement of the Albert Einstein Academy is as follows:

 

The Albert Einstein Academy for Letters, Arts, and Sciences seeks to prepare students for 21st century careers and lives as members of a democratic society and global economy. The Academy provides students with tools to develop their intellectual, artistic, physical, technological, and social competencies, preparing them for the next phase of their education.

Students will graduate with a deep understanding of the relationships among disciplines, as well as the ability to continuously develop their intellectual curiosity as globally aware, civic-minded individuals. We accomplish this by providing inter-disciplinary educational experiences that are rich in exposure to current and relevant technology, the visual and performing arts, leadership and service opportunities, and a variety of world languages, all in a small-school environment.

 

Offering a comprehensive curriculum in grades K-12, AEALAS requires all students to complete a rigorous, college preparatory program. AEALAS graduation requirements meet or exceed the University of California’s a-g requirements in all subject areas. There are a growing number of Advanced Placement and Honors courses offered. The AP program is open to all students who would like to participate. The administration and all departments use the California State Curriculum Frameworks and the University of California (UC) requirements for admission as general guidelines for creating the overall structure of our curriculum and our educational outcome goals for graduating seniors.
