Equestrian. At AOA, students have the unique opportunity to combine their passion for horses with a quality education. With a comprehensive program that combines knowledge and skill, and a state-of-the-art equestrian facility just a few yards from the classrooms, riders will truly find the best of both worlds.
Power of the Pen. Students will practice developing and enhancing their writing skills and techniques in preparation for the Power of the Pen Writing Competition. During the competition, students write about a topic given in a prompt for 45 minutes. They are judged in three different rounds by outside judges on the quality and originality of their work.
