American Academy Online is the virtual option of a cutting-edge American International school network which helps to educate the leaders of the future. While our schools in Central Europe were closed due to the Coronavirus, we quickly and successfully switched to online schooling, so that our students could continue to learn. With this change, we realized that we can maintain the same level of education that our brick and mortar schools have in an online setting and so we decided to create an online branch of American Academy for students all around the world.
At American Academy Online, students can choose to focus on their strengths, while getting a well-rounded education that will prepare them for applying to prestigious universities around the world. Students can concentrate on learning business skills like marketing and global entrepreneurship or they can concentrate for example on STEM classes by taking computer programming, as well as, environmental science.
Our online students also participate in our signature theme weeks. Theme weeks help our students learn how to work as part of a team, digitally around the world while stepping away from their virtual classrooms to work on a themed project.
Even though American Academy Online is a virtual school, our aim is to maintain the same family-like atmosphere that is seen throughout our other schools. Our faculty and staff are committed to fostering a safe online environment for students to grow as individuals in order to achieve their goals.Yvonne Crawford, Head of American Academy in Prague & American Academy Online.

American Academy Online is an online, global high school program of American Academy network which is one of the leading international school networks in Central Europe and consists of three brick and mortar schools. Therefore we, as an organization, are not just an online school, we have dozens of teachers and hundreds of students physically studying at our schools with some of them also taking advantage of our American Academy Online program.
Operating brick and mortar schools means that we are government regulated, we received many different approvals and in general went through a lot of approval processes that schools which have just an online program, don’t have to go through. By having a successful network of international schools, American Academy Online has resources to ensure that the program is of a top quality compared to others offered around the world.
Don’t expect long tests; we are mostly interested in the student’s character and enthusiasm.
That is why we focus on an interview and written essays.
