San Jose Academy and High School provides a unique environment, which emphasizes high academic achievement using state of the art technology and innovative but proven educational methods. We prepare students to successfully compete in an increasingly competitive post-secondary environment and the global job market. In addition, our school offers a personal, safe and caring environment where we strive to meet our students' needs as individual learners.
In all classes, teachers implement an instructional framework which provides students with opportunities to learn in small groups with the teacher, collaborate with peers, and work independently.
Highlights of the academy curriculum include a focus on 'Learning to Think' strategies using Habits of Mind, 16 habits that successful "thinkers" employ, identified by researcher Art Costa and a blend of print and electronic curriculum resources, with technology integrated into every classroom.
Highlights of the high school curriculum include an entirely digital curriculum provided by Edgenuity, which is an approved provider of online education by the FLDOE. Edgenuity provides engaging online and blended learning education solutions that propel success for every student, empower every teacher to deliver more effective instruction, and enable schools and districts to meet their academic goals. Edgenuity delivers a range of Core Curriculum, AP®, Elective, Career and Technical Education (CTE), and Credit Recovery courses aligned to the rigor and high expectations of state, Common Core and iNACOL standards and designed to inspire life-long learning. Edgenuity provides students with a rich, in-depth learning experience using video, animation, audio, and interactivity to raise student achievement. Additionally, built-in assestments allow students to gauge their progress and move ahead at their own pace. San Jose High School also provides students with a college preparatory education and real world experience through its unique Professional Internship "work-study" program.
