Facilitating education for adult students is an important focus
of AIU High School, as many of our students are looking to finish
High School and earn their diploma. Many of our outstanding
alumni have been able to achieve the education that life may
have interrupted. This is why our educational philosophy leans
towards andragogy. This methodology fits well with the online
or distance learning program offered by AIU High School. Andragogy
is the antonym of pedagogy. In pedagogy, the concern is with
transmitting the content, while in andragogy, the concern is
with facilitating the acquisition of the content. Andragogy
is a theory developed by Knowles (1913-97) which differentiates
the needs of adult learners from those of juveniles and uses
the term andragogy to describe the specific methods which should
be employed in the education of adults. The Online High School
programs offered at AIU make the educational process leading
to a high school diploma attainable by students without the
need to attend class physically.
AIU High School is registered with the Department of Education of the state of Florida, Florida Private Schools Directory in Miami-Dade County.

Key Aspects of Andragogy:
The adult learner moves towards independence and is self-directing. The teacher encourages and nurtures this movement.
The learner's experience is a rich resource for learning. Hence teaching methods include discussion, problem-solving etc.
People learn what they need to know, so that learning programs are organized around life application.
Learning experiences should be based around experiences, since people are performance centered in their learning.
Andragogy requires that adult learners be involved in the identification of their learning needs and the planning of how those needs are satisfied. Learning should be an active rather than a passive process. Adult learning is most effective when concerned with solving problems that have relevance to the learner's everyday experience.
