Learning

Dedicated faculty take time to know each student well, partnering with them in their learning.  Last year, 11 of 12 students who took AP Calculus exams (AB & BC) scored either a 4 or a 5 on this test.  Four of these same students participated in multiple seasons on athletic teams, another was an accomplished musician, and another still was the lead in the play.

Opportunities

Allen Academy offers 13 interscholastic sports and fields 19 teams for both middle and upper school students.  Ram Athletics won state championships in baseball (2013 & 2014), boys basketball (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014), and girls basketball (2014).  The Rams have also reached the state semi-finals in football the past two years.

Authentic

Allen Academy has a proud history that includes a military era from 1910-1982. Many of the school's graduates went on to distinguished careers in the military and served our country in protecting its freedoms. While the school is now a co-ed, independent day school, the values of respect, excellence, integrity, passion, responsibility, and selfless service remain at its core.

Learning

Allen Academy’s college counseling offers parents and students comprehensive advising in preparation for the entire college admission process.  In concert with the strong college prep curriculum offered, this extensive approach to assist students as they research colleges, investigate careers, and begin to make decisions about life after Allen Academy results in many postsecondary opportunities for our students. Seniors are accepted at a variety of colleges and universities throughout the country.

Opportunities

Arts are an integral part of the curriculum at Allen Academy.  Lower School has a daily commitment to either visual or choral music classes.  Opportunities in band, chorus, theater, and visual arts are available to Middle and Upper School students, with classes meeting every day for the entire school year, and a required component of the school program.
