About Us

Our Mission

Through rigorous, culturally-rich teaching and a creative, nurturing environment, AUA will empower students who achieve intellectually, interpret the world critically, and dream beyond measure.

Our Vision

The AUA will serve as a beacon of academic promise and create a community of students who are the seeds of their ancestors’ wildest dreams—authentic, engaged citizens and leaders of their community who achieve beyond expectations and fuel the advancement and glory of their people.

We opened our doors in Fall 2020 with Kindergarten and 6th grade classes. 

In Fall 2021, we will grow to accept Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 6th Grade and 7th Grade. 

In Fall 2022, we grew to accept Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 6th, 7th and 8th Grade. 

In Fall 2023, we will grow to K – 3 and 6- 8th grade. Apply by February 17, 2023!

Manifesting our ancestors'
wildest dreams.
