(Part Time, On Campus)
AHS Essentials is a part-time, reduced-price complement to the faith-oriented, character-molding education American Heritage has been improving for 50 years. The school will provide both its traditional experience and AHS Essentials at its 40-acre American Fork, UT campus. AHS Essentials is well-suited to students who
- have other time-consuming interests;
- who may struggle with a full-day schedule;
- who want to combine AHS on-campus with courses not offered at AHS; or
- who prefer a shorter school day that focuses on academic fundamentals (math and languages arts) and abbreviated courses that provide the blend of faith, character, and patriotism that is unique to American Heritage School.
In addition to normal homework in math and language arts, AHS Essentials students in grades 1-6 watch an interactive 15–25 minute video at home each day to supplement their history, literature, science, and geography on-campus classes. For grades 9–12, AHS Essentials covers only a portion of full-time, on-campus curriculum. To satisfy AHS graduation requirements, AHS Essentials needs to be supplemented with additional credits from other sources (American Heritage Worldwide, BYU Independent Study, part-time enrollment in public school, etc.).
