Meet Our Instructors

Our instructors are engaging, interesting human beings, passionate about their domains, with professional experiences beyond the classroom with which they can relate skills and content to the real world. They also serve as one-on-one mentors, guiding students holistically in their school experience as well as offering advice for life after ATI.

Meet Our Founder

Our ATI program is designed by Michael Strong, one of the most experienced designers of innovative school programs in the U.S. His past projects include Montessori secondary school program design at The Judson Montessori School (San Antonio), The Emerson School (Palo Alto), and Hacienda School (Pleasanton). More recently, he co-founded KoSchool in Austin, Texas, which combines his high performance approach to AP coursework and SAT score gains with a focus on entrepreneurial and creative projects. ATI began as a next-generation version of the stellar program at KoSchool.

Join Purpose-Driven Students

ATI is ideal for students who seek to gain greater control over their educational experience. Some have a definite passion and purpose, others may simply know they want greater autonomy to explore their interests more extensively than is possible at a conventional school. Students may use this autonomy to explore intellectual interests, creative passions, entrepreneurial initiatives, or future professional paths. The paths are as varied as are the students.
